Primary silica precipitate at the Precambrian/Cambrian boundary in the South Oman Salt Basin, Sultanate of Oman
An organic-rich laminated chert (silicilyte) consisting of up to 90% microcrystalline quartz that formed at the Precambrian-Cambrian boundary acts as a light-oil reservoir in the subsurface of the South Oman Salt Basin, Sultanate of Oman.

Because of the economic significance and the unconventional reservoir characteristics, there is great interest in...[Show more]
