The Jal Az-Zor Formation sediments in north Kuwait were deposited on the southwestern margin of the Zagros foreland basin. They are organized into 30–60 ft (9–18 m)–thick repeated fining upward high-frequency sequences. The sequences generally consist of conglomerate and pebbly sandstone, coarse- to fine-grained sandstone, muddy sandstone, siltstone, and mudstone lithofacies, ideally stacked in ascending order. In upper part of the sequences, burrowing and fossiliferous horizons are developed, which reflect marine influence during their deposition.
