AAPG VGP Super Session - Simon Stewart - Structural Style of Ediacaran Basins in Saudi Arabia – Subsurface Insights
The surface geology of Saudi Arabia is divided between the Proterozoic shield and Phanerozoic sedimentary cover. Both sectors are well-studied but in between are isolated Ediacaran basins that record the final events of the East African Orogeny. The structural styles of these basins are reviewed here based on interpretation of 2D and 3D seismic reflection data that image through the Phanerozoic and comparison with Arabian Shield outcrops. The basins are distinguished by layered seismic reflectors that are interpreted as sedimentary and volcanic strata. Most of the basins are bound by extensional faults and the basin fills show growth architectures and angular unconformities. Based on their structural characteristics in comparison with sub-basins exposed on the shield, the basin fills are correlated with the Ediacaran Jibalah Group, an equivalent of the Omani Nafun Group.
