Globally, Lower Cretaceous carbonate platforms form important hydrocarbon reservoirs. An exceptional seismic dataset allowed us to examine controls on the stratigraphy, seismic geomorphology, facies architecture and along-strike variability of a Lower Cretaceous platform. Within the platform succession, a partitioning of facies is developed between Transgressive, Highstand and Forced Regressive seismic sequences. Spectacular seismic geomorphological images of the platform using spectral decomposition techniques reveal spatial organization within both depositional and diagenetic (i.e. palaeokarst) patterns. The study was undertaken in order to optimize a well location. Predrill seismic facies interpretations were interpreted with the aid of offset well data and drill...
