Geo-Scientific Session for Educators in Al Dhahira

Providing a geo-scientific knowledge sharing platform for students is part of a Memorandum of Understanding between Daleel Petroleum and the Geological Society of Oman. Through this partnership, a successful geological session was conducted for more than 30 educators from different schools across Al Dhahirah Governorate; Ibri, Yunqil & Dhank. The session was planned and delivered with an objective to provide a better understanding of the rock cycle and plate tectonics, identification of rock types, geological dating and structural geology of rocks, in addition to creating a commercial value for Oman geology in both the oil & gas as well as the mining & tourism sectors. There is a potential for integratingpetroleum geology in educational classes for students in the region. The session was prepared by Dr. Salah Al Dhahab, Senior Geological Advisor at Daleel Petroleum. He has over 20 years of experience in the Oil and Gas Industry through working for Petroleum Development Oman (NOC), Shell EPT (IOC), Knowledge Reservoir Petroleum Service Company (now RPS-KR), and Oman Oil Company (upstream investment company). Dr. Salah has a BSc in Petroleum Geology from the University of Aberdeen and a PhD in fractured reservoir characterization from the Institute of Petroleum, Heriot-Watt University, U.K.
