The Upper Jurassic to Eocene carbonate rocks of the Gargano Promontory belong to the Apulia Carbonate Platform (ACP) and provide a spectacular and complete succession of slope and base-of-slope resedimented gravity flow carbonates with preserved reservoir properties and, with its coeval carbonate platform, displaying various tectonostratigraphic architectures. The ACP margin is characterized by an overall aggrading architecture, and different geometric and depositional features. Facies types and sedimentary dynamics of the carbonate slope and gravity deposits can be analyzed with respect to the stratigraphic architecture of the platform-to-basin transition. These outcrops are the only analogs of some important oil reservoirs and plays present in the equivalent slope to basin succession in the Adriatic offshore and elsewhere.

Abstract

The Upper Jurassic to Eocene carbonate rocks of the Gargano Promontory belong to the Apulia Carbonate Platform (ACP) and provide a spectacular and complete succession of slope and base-of-slope resedimented gravity flow carbonates with preserved reservoir properties and, with its coeval carbonate platform, displaying various tectonostratigraphic architectures. The ACP margin is characterized by an overall aggrading architecture, and different geometric and depositional features. Facies types and sedimentary dynamics of the carbonate slope and gravity deposits can be analyzed with respect to the stratigraphic architecture of the platform-to-basin transition. These outcrops are the only analogs of some important oil reservoirs and plays present in the equivalent slope to basin succession in the Adriatic offshore and elsewhere.
