Sassan is another small but non- commercial find made in 1956 by MPC close to Ain Zalah, with 40[degree sign] API oil lying in Shiranish argillaceous fractured carbonates and the Albian Jawan lagoonal fractured carbonates.
The depositional environment depicted is high energy sand shoals, bar, or beach for Grainstone microfacies, inner shelf with moderate water circulation for Packstone microfacies, lagoonal settings with open and restricted circulation for Wackestone microfacies and low energy environment like lagoon and on outer shelf for Mudstone microfacies.
The Rootsikula Stage in Saaremaa consists of shallow-water sediments: finely laminated lagoonal dolomites with Eurypterus, bioturbated dolomites, laminated stromatolites, biomorphic and coarse-grained limestones.
In August (rainy season), the highest SRSi concentration was registered in S2, S4, and S7, which were localized in the outlet of the lagoonal system of Atasta and Mamantel River, respectively.
Upsection, micritic limestones with rudists and benthic foraminifera indicate deposition within a sheltered, lagoonal environment without terrigenous influence.
Such a succession reveals a sharp, shallowing upwards trend of development through the open shelf (III) to lagoonal (I) facies zones and can be treated as a distinct upper submesocycle of the second Raikkula mesocycle.
So based on restricted faunal assemblage this microfacies is interpreted to have been deposited in a shallow subtidal lagoonal environment of the inner shelf.

1991), is represented by up to 95 m thick claystones and marlstones lying between nodular limestones (Rumba Formation) and reef and lagoonal dolostones (Jaagarahu and Muhu formations).
Species of milliolids prefer low turbulence and soft substrate and their high abundance indicates saline to restricted lagoonal setting.
Later deposition was in the lagoonal and tidal-range environments (Fig.
