UAE’s existing oil and gas reservoirs are developed mainly in carbonates rocks within a time period ranging from the late Permian (ca 290 Ma) to middle Miocene (ca 15 Ma). Proven reserves and actual production in the neighboring oil-producing countries (e.g. Oman and Saudi Arabia), however, are also from much older carbonate and clastic reservoir rocks, ranging between Infra Cambrian ca 540 Ma to Silurian ca 420 - Ma. Future petroleum production of the UAE could be increased by exploration of deep basins and by enhanced reservoir recovery with explicit fracture and fracturing networks.
