The Cenomanian–Early Turonian Mishrif Formation represents part of a carbonate platform system that characterised most of the Arabian Plate during this time. The formation is a prolific hydrocarbon reservoir in many regional oilfields, including the hydrocarbon accumulations over the West Qurna arch. Previous regional investigations reveal significant heterogeneities in reservoir quality that are attributed to facies variability (e.g. Lehmman, 2013;Yose et al. 2013; Mahdi, 2010; Aqrawi et al. 2010).
