New Book Released

Pre-Cambrian to Paleozoic Petroleum Systems of the Arabian Plate

We are excited to announce the release of EAGE’s latest book entitled Pre-Cambrian to Paleozoic Petroleum Systems of the Arabian Plate, available now on EarthDoc.

Edited by Thomas B. van Hoof (Dutch Science Council), this compilation of abstracts in book form originates from the Seventh EAGE Arabian Plate Geology Workshop in Oman in 2018. It strives to enhance exploration efforts in the Precambrian-Paleozoic geology of the Arabian Plate. From the Silurian Qusaiba hot shales in Saudi Arabia to the Permo-carboniferous glacigenic Al-Khlata formation in Oman, the book explores diverse hydrocarbon play concepts. Covering four billion years of the Earth’s history, the book reviews structural geology, sedimentology, (tectono-) stratigraphy, and unconventional targets.

Siddharth Misra


Prof Dr Siddharth Misra’s research focuses on improving subsurface characterization and prospect evaluation for the exploration of hydrocarbons, minerals and water resources.

His major contribution is in the theory of electromagnetic responses of geological formations to various charge polarization phenomena. The theory has enabled him to introduce a multi-frequency electromagnetic log-inversion technique to remove dielectric effects for improved estimation of hydrocarbon pore volume.
