A new sequence-stratigraphic framework is proposed for the Burgan and Mauddud formations (Albian) of Kuwait. This framework is based on the integration of core, well-log, and biostratigraphic data, as well as seismic interpretation from giant oil fields of Kuwait.

The Lower Cretaceous Burgan and Mauddud formations form two third-order composite sequences, the older of which constitutes the lowstand, trans-gressive, and highstand sequence sets of the Burgan Formation. This composite sequence is subdivided into 14 high-frequency, depositional sequences that are characterized by tidal-influenced, marginal-marine deposits in northeast Kuwait that grade into fluvial-dominated, continental deposits to the southwest.

The younger composite...
