Everyone at Cambridge Carbonates would like to wish all our clients and friends a Happy New Year!!! Here’s to a happy, healthy and prosperous 2019.
We'd like to welcome Lucy and Karla to Cambridge Carbonates, both will be with us for a few months working on specific projects.
Lucy is currently finishing her PhD whilst Karla having finished her studies has flown in from Mexico!
Welcome to the office!
Peter, Jo and Julie are working with colleagues in EBN and TNO to assess the geothermal potential of Dinantian carbonates in the Netherlands.
Our colleagues Benoit Vincent and Lucy Manifold attended the EAGE workshop: Reservoir Characterization and Modelling Workflows for Giant Carbonate Field Developments of the Middle East in Abu Dhabi 17-21 February.
Benoit presented a talk on: Depositional and diagenetic controls on carbonate reservoir property distribution in a supergiant reservoir, SE Iraq.
If you want some information about our Jurassic and Cretaceous palaeogeographical maps of the UAE, currently in preparation, please contact us.
Cambridge Carbonates Ltd is a sponsor of the Mallorca 2019 Bathurst carbonate conference.
We will be awarding prizes to the best talk and poster by research students.

Hope you enjoy your day and the tasty treats!
has been accepted for publication in the Geological Society of London "United Kingdom Oil and Gas Fields".
The Morag Field is a small oilfield underlying the Maureen Field in UK Block 16/29a. Black oil is trapped within Upper Permian, Morag Member, vuggy and fractured dolomite rafts between 9,300 ft and 10,600 ft TVDSS. The dolomite reservoir occurs at the top of a Zechstein salt dome. Morag was discovered in 1979 by well, 16/29a-A1, the first platform well drilled for the overlying Maureen Field with its Palaeocene sandstone reservoir. Morag was produced via a single well (16/29a-A1) between 1991 and 1994. Three more platform wells were drilled into the Permian interval prior to Maureen Field start up but only one penetrated oil-bearing dolomite (16/29a-A2). An additional well (16/29a‑A23Z) was drilled into the Morag Field in 1993. The well encountered Morag Member at virgin pressure and tested oil at high flow rate but then the well failed due to mechanical problems. Oil in place was calculated to be about 24 mmbbl in four independent fault blocks. Ultimately 16/29a-A1 delivered 2.6 mmstb from a fault block calculated to have held 6.7 mmbbl STOIIP.
We had the lovely Aruna Kailey as our dance teacher, and together with jangly belts and bindis we stepped to various songs and learnt a lot of moves!
It was lots of fun and think everyone enjoyed themselves!
Countdown to the wedding!
