Abstract The Jurassic Arabian Intrashelf Basin provides the setting for the world's greatest conventional oil reserves, including the world's largest oilfield, the supergiant Ghawar field. The stratigraphic interval corresponding to the development and infill of the Arabian Intrashelf Basin is from the uppermost Dhruma Formation to the top of the Hith Anhydrite Formation, spanning the late Bathonian–early Callovian to Tithonian. Many areas of the intrashelf basin have been well described in…
