Response of the calcareous nannofossils to the Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary event: A case study from Sinai, Egypt

A detailed study of calcareous nannofossils was conducted on a well-exposed succession encompassing the Cretaceous-Paleogene (K-Pg) boundary interval at Wadi Nukhul, Sinai, Egypt, as a part of the southern Tethyan margin. The nannofossil biostratigraphic data show that the Nukhul succession sustains a complete K-Pg boundary interval. The nannofossil assemblage indicates a shift from cool/oligo-mesotrophic conditions in the late Maastrichtian Micula murus Zone to warm/oligotrophic in the latest Maastrichtian M. prinsii Zone prior to the K-Pg boundary. At the K-Pg boundary, diversity, and total abundance of the calcareous nannofossils remarkably decreased signifying unstable marine conditions. The post-impact assemblage (lowermost part of NP1 Zone) was marked by acme of Cervisiella operculata indicating oligotrophic conditions in the photic zone related to the diminished of the marine primary …

The Upper Jurassic sediments, Marib-Shabwa Basin, Yemen: Lithofacies aspects and sequence stratigraphic analysis

The present study is devoted to understanding the evolution of the Upper Jurassic Sab'atayn Formation in the Marib-Shabwa Basin, Yemen, through a sequence stratigraphic analysis based on integrating datasets of sedimentology, seismic sections, and well logs. The Sab'atayn Formation (Tithonian age) is represented by a series of clastic and evaporites that were deposited under fluvio-deltaic to prodeltaic settings. It is divided into four members including Yah (at the base), upwards to Seen, Alif, and Safir at the top. Two third-order depositional sequences were determined for the Tithonian succession which were separated by three sequence boundaries. These sequences were classified into their systems tracts signifying several sedimentation patterns of progradational, aggradational, and retrogradational parasequence sets. The first depositional sequence corresponds to the early-middle Tithonian Yah and …

The upper cretaceous carbonate sediments of the Ras Budran Field, Gulf of Suez, Egypt: stacking patterns and depositional controls

The present study interprets the carbonate stacking patterns and their depositional controls in the Upper Cretaceous strata of the Ras Budran Field in the Gulf of Suez, Egypt, on the basis of integrated well logging and a geological report provided. A set of well logs was run for two wells (RB-A2 and RB-B2), comprising gamma ray, resistivity, density, neutron, sonic, and photoelectric factor. Composite logs and geological reports were also used to help deduce the lithological and biological description of the stratigraphic units under investigation. The stacking patterns of the carbonate rocks yielded three types of electro-facies. The first facies covers the lower part of the Brown Limestone (early Campanian) and reflects a cylindrical (aggrading) stacking pattern. This facies indicates keep-up carbonate deposition in a heterogeneous facies accumulated in shallow water. The second facies covers the upper part of the …

Cretaceous–Paleogene (K–Pg) boundary in south Sinai, Egypt: Paleoenvironment and sequence stratigraphy implications

High-resolution quantitative analysis of the benthonic foraminifera throughout the K–Pg boundary interval on four sections (Wadi Nukhul, Abu Qada, Thamad, and Sudr Al Hitan) in south Sinai, Egypt was conducted. Planktonic foraminiferal biostratigraphy indicates a complete K–Pg boundary interval in W. Nukhul section, while minor hiatuses characterized the other sections. Benthonic foraminifera reflect outer neritic-upper bathyal setting for the studied interval, while outer neritic setting marks the latest Maastrichtian. The upper Maastrichtian assemblage indicates mesotrophic to slightly eutrophic marine conditions. At the K–Pg boundary in W. Nukhul, benthonic foraminifera display a significant turnover. A major change in the benthonic foraminifera assemblage which is marked by a decrease in the infaunal taxa and buliminids indicates a shortage in the food supply to the sea floor at the K–Pg boundary. This …

Sequence stratigraphy and petrophysical investigation of fluvial sediments: a case study Nubia Sandstone, Ras Budran Field, Gulf of Suez, Egypt

Sequence stratigraphy is a crucial predictive tool in the analysis of the sedimentary environments, especially fluvial systems. Therefore, the present study focuses on the Nubia Sandstone in Ras Budran field, Gulf of Suez, Egypt based on the characteristics of integrated wireline loggings. The Nubia Sandstone is mostly made up of sandstone with minor intercalations of claystone/ shale beds. Its thickness fluctuates, ranging from 623 to 1301 ft. The Paleozoic–Cretaceous Nubia Sandstone was subdivided into three depositional sequences (DS1-DS3) and then grouped into distinct systems tracts signifying various aggradation, retrogradation and progradation trends. Three sequence borders that appear to originate in a subaerial environment separate these sequences. The quantitative petrophysical assessment indicated that all of the subdivided units within Nubia Formation display excellent reservoir properties in …

Late Jurassic Safir evaporite salts, Sab'atayn Basin, Yemen: Lithofacies distribution, cyclicity, and mineralogy

This study aims to interpret and evaluate the Late Jurassic Safir rock unit in Sab'atayn Basin in Yemen according to its lithofacies distribution, cyclicity, and mineralogy. The study is conducted on six wells, namely, Halewah-09, Khahtan-01, Azal-25, Al-Nasr-27, Baraqish-01, and Dost Alwihda-01, based on the responses and characteristics of integrated wireline logs. The Safir Member is divided into several cycles and interpreted as a regular rhythmic deposition of halite interbedded with thin clastic (shales and sands) laminations at the top. The cycle diversity is caused by the sedimentation supply invasion (influx) from the hinterland during sea-level regression. The mineralogical analysis of the evaporite salts reveals that the log responses at the studied basin wells have a cylindrical shape, indicating low gamma ray and bulk density readings. Additionally, the high-resistivity log values designate evaporite salts …

Diagenetic characteristics and sequence stratigraphy on carbonate deposits: a case study from Wadi El Dakhl, West Gulf of Suez, Egypt

The Upper Cretaceous Sudr Formation at Wadi El Dakhl, West Gulf of Suez, Egypt, was described based on its diagenetic characteristics and sequence stratigraphy in order to enhance our ability to realize the evolution of the sedimentary basin in the study area. The diagenetic characteristics in the studied succession include the following processes: cementation, recrystallization, compaction, and dolomitization that are particularly sensitive to post-sedimentation evolution. Two depositional sequences (DS-1 and DS-2) were distinguished based on their lithological aspects, facies types, and diagenetic characteristics that were constrained by two sequence boundaries (SB-1 and SB-2). Each sequence was classified into transgressive (TST) and highstand (HST) sediments separated by the deepest marine conditions called the maximum flooding surface (MFS). The sediments were characterized by significant …

Sequence stratigraphic analysis and depositional evolution of the Upper Cretaceous deposits in Ras Budran oil field, Gulf of Suez, Egypt

The Upper Cretaceous deposits represent significant oil reservoirs in several fields of the Gulf of Suez province, Egypt. The present work aims to study these sediments in Ras Budran oil field in view of sequence stratigraphic analysis. Five third-order depositional sequences were determined for the Upper Cretaceous section in Ras Budran field depending on the analysis and interpretation of the integrated well logging and biostratigraphic datasets. The five sequences are separated by six sequence boundaries and were classified into their systems tracts signifying several sedimentation patterns of progradation and retrogradation. The first depositional sequence corresponds to the Cenomanian-early Turonian Raha and Abu Qada formations classifying into transgressive and highstand systems tracts. The second sequence comprises the Late Turonian Wata Formation subdividing into transgressive and highstand …

Sequence stratigraphic framework of the Upper Eocene–Oligocene succession, northwest Birket Qarun, Fayum-Egypt

The Upper Eocene–Oligocene sequence exposed northwest Birket Qarun; Fayum district covers two rock units, Qasr El-Sagha (Temple and Dir Abu Lifa members) and Gebel Qatrani formations were re-evaluated by sequence stratigraphy. Six depositional sequences were recognized based on facies geometry, and sedimentological aspects. The first sequence (Temple Member) was accumulated under marginal intertidal flat environment indicating highstand deposits. The second (the lower Dir Abu Lifa Member) displays a regressive sedimentary facies starting with progradational delta front environment reflecting lowstand deposits followed upward by a lagoonal environment indicating transgressive/highstand deposits. The third (the top of the Dir Abu Lifa Member) was accumulated under a low sinuosity stream reflecting lowstand deposits. The fourth which constitutes the topmost of Dir Abu Lifa Member initiating …

FACIES ANALYSIS AND PALEOENVIRONMENTAL RECONSTRUCTION OF THE THEBES FORMATION (LOWER EOCENE) SEQUENCE ALONG THE RED SEA COAST BETWEEN QUSIER AND HURGHADA, EGYPT.

Upper Cretaceous mixed carbonate-siliciclastic sequences are among the most important targets for hydrocarbon exploration in the Moghan area, located in the eastern Para-Tethys Basin. Despite of their significance, little is known about their facies characteristics and depositional environments. Detailed facies analysis and paleoenvironmental reconstruction of these sequences have been carried out in eight surface sections. Accordingly, four siliciclastic facies, eight carbonate facies and one volcanic facies have been recognized. Detailed facies descriptions and interpretations, together with the results of facies frequency analysis, standard facies models and Upper Cretaceous depositional models of Para-Tethys Basin, have been integrated and a non-rimmed carbonate platform is presented. This platform was affected by siliciclastic influx, in the form of coastal fan delta and submarine fans in the shallow-to deep-marine parts, respectively. This model is interpreted to be shallower in the central and northeastern parts of the Moghan area. Toward the southeast and southwest, this shallow platform turns into deep marine settings along steep slopes without remarkable marginal barriers.

Geological appraisal of the Theban cliff overhanging the Hatshepsut temple at Deir el-Bahari

Throughout its existence the Temple of Hatshepsut, as well as two other royal sanctuaries, the temples of Mentuhotep II and Thutmose III, located in the great bay of Deir el-Bahari, have been under constant threat of falling rocks from the overhanging Theban cliff. The PCMA UW archaeological expedition at Deir el-Bahari, which has progressed with the study and conservation of the Hatshepsut temple since the 1960s, has implemented a project designed to address the issue of the protection of the temple from damages that could be caused by environmental processes (rainwater and seismic activity) affecting the Theban cliff behind the monument. In a geological survey of the fractured limestone cliff, the evidence from 31 observation stations was appraised and samples of Esna Shale and Theban Limestone were examined in order to ascertain the degree of the cliff’s instability and fragility. The results were used to prepare a 2D model presenting the environmental processes threatening the ancient substance.

Facies analysis, cyclicity and biostratigraphy of the Upper Cretaceous Sudr Formation, Wadi El Dakhl, West Gulf of Suez, Egypt: implications for sea-level changes and tectonics

The Upper Cretaceous Sudr Formation at Wadi El Dakhl, West Gulf of Suez (Northeast Egypt) has been described to analyze the facies and their cycles in conjunction with the influence of sea level and tectonics. The Sudr Formation (~ 130 m thick) is composed mainly of chalk and chalky limestone, with intercalations of argillaceous limestone and marl. It could be divided into two members; the Markha of the early–middle Campanian age and Abu Zenima of the late Campanian–Maastrichtian age. Biostratigraphically, nine planktonic foraminiferal zones have been recorded which encompass the studied section. Petrographic studies of the Sudr Formation led to identify five facies types; four carbonate facies and one marl facies. These facies have been deposited in the environmental conditions of an inner, middle, outer shelf, and open marine basinal setting. Two types of cyclicity have been identified …

Upper cretaceous–lower Paleocene subsurface sequence, Farafra oasis, Western Desert, Egypt: stratigraphical and paleoenvironmental inferences

This work presents details litho-, bio-, and sequence stratigraphy and paleoenvironmental studies on the Upper Cretaceous–lower Paleocene subsurface rocks of Sahl Baraka at Farafra Oasis, Western Desert, Egypt. Lithostratigraphically, two rock units were recognized: the Wadi Hennis (at the base) and the Khoman (at the top) formations. Ten planktonic foraminiferal zones were identified from the Khoman Formation covering the Campanian–Danian chronostratigraphic interval. Using the R-mode hierarchical cluster analyses, four benthonic foraminiferal biofacies (A, B, C, and D) were recognized. The data indicates that the sediments of the Khoman Formation were deposited in marine environments ranging from deep marine (outer neritic–upper bathyal setting) for the lower and middle parts to shallow marine one (middle–outer neritic setting) for the upper part. The Sahl Baraka area was located in a …

Sequence stratigraphic architecture of the Upper Jurassic-Lower Cretaceous deposits in the Sayun-Masilah Basin, Yemen: A case study from Masilah oilfields

Twelve third order depositional sequences (SQ1 to SQ12) are defined of the Upper Jurassic-Lower Cretaceous succession in the Masilah oilfields, Sayun-Masilah Basin, Yemen based on analysis of well logs and integrated datasets (biostratigraphic, petrographic and seismic data). These sequences which are bracketed by thirteen sequence boundaries (SB1 to SB13) represent several stages of transgression and regression that caused changes in facies types. The base of the sequences in this study unconformably overlies the basement complex at the start of the regional transgression represented by Shuqra Formation (TST1), whereas the top is bounded by normal regression represented by Qishn Carbonate Member (HST12). The producing horizons in this succession are located in highstand and transgressive systems tracts of the Lower and Upper Qishn clastic in the depositional sequences (SQ8 to SQ11 …
