Sedimentology, sequence stratigraphy, and diagenesis of the lower Wuchiapingian Khuff unit in a field in Saudi Arabia
The lower Wuchiapingian Khuff unit consists of shallow marine carbonates and evaporites, and has two parts: the upper Wuchiapingian and the lower Wuchiapingian; the lower unit has a thickness of around 90 meters in the studied field in Saudi Arabia. This study integrates sedimentology and sequence stratigraphy to contribute to the exploration and exploitation of lower Wuchiapingian Khuff unit. The lithofacies include subaerial exposure, sabkha/saline anhydrite, tidal flat, lagoon, shallow subtidal, shoal flank, shoal crest, and open marine. The lithofacies succession represents an arid, homoclinal ...
