... phases. Qarn Alam is a surface-piercing salt dome in Central Oman (Fig. 1 ) with blocks of Neoproterozoic to early Cambrian limestones and mixed limestones and dolomites ( Peters et al. 2003 ). The variety of facies exposed in the Ghaba Salt Domes was established following earlier reconnaissance...

... (see white areas in Figure 7 ). As observed in the Qarn Sahmah salt dome, whitish to yellowish anhydrite often forms in-between single stringer ridges in the centre of the dome. The mesoscopic fabric is characterised by thin laminae of pink to whitish anhydrite alternating with dark ochre-coloured...

... are commonly over-pressured, and consist of porous dolomitic carbonates that are encased in salt at depths of 3–5 km. The mostly shallow-water carbonates pose a challenge; both in terms of understanding the origin and spatial distribution of the various lithofacies, and in building predictive reservoir models...

... as a Geochemist in the Regional Studies Team. Highly-faulted structures (fault throw larger than top seal thickness) above salt domes, are water-bearing at Haushi level (Qarat Kibrit, Qarn Alam, Al Ghubar, Mafraq and Ghaba). However, apart from these extreme cases, seal breaching is not a general problem...
