of Suez with a focus on the impact of tectonics on synrift depositional facies, and high-resolution, standardized stratigraphic correlation of the region bordered by six different countries (Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Yemen, Eritrea, and Djibouti) which use different stratigraphic terminologies. 2. An evaluation of pre-salt (pre-Late-Miocene) and pre-rift (JurassicEocene) sedimentary packages and petroleum plays in the Red Sea basin constrained by paleofacies reconstruction and correlatable source rocks and geochemical data. 3. Play fairway mapping of hydrocarbon prospectivity in selected key areas in the Red Sea based on a synthesis of information from wells, seismic, and other data. 4. An atlas of seismic, stratigraphic, and well data for quick reference and use.
