Reservoir properties of limestones can be significantly altered by burial dolomitization, which warrants careful investigation of this not fully understood diagenetic process in reservoirs. This project focuses on late-diagenetic dolomite bodies in Permian host-rock outcrops in the central Oman Mountains as a potential surface analogue for dolostone reservoirs in the Middle East.
