CaResS group commences logging and processing core samples from the Upper Cretaceous of central Jordan

30 August, 2021

After successful drilling of 6 cored wells in the exceptionally organic-rich Upper Cretaceous source rock sequence from central Jordan, CaResS Unconventionals’ subgroup (led by Prof. Volker Vahrenkamp and Dr. Israa Abu-Mahfouz) has actively commenced logging and processing of the core samples.

We are absolutely thrilled to have been successful in getting enough core materials from such excellent source rocks that will allow us to conduct high-quality research to improve our understanding of the different source rocks properties in Saudi Arabia and all other source rock sequences of the same origin in the Middle East. Great research opportunities are ahead of us.” - Dr. Israa Abu-Mahfouz (Research Scientist - CaResS Group)
