Diagenesis is an essential aspect, although quite different in processes and effects, of mudrocks, sandstones, and carbonate rocks. This chapter concentrates on the most important diagenetic features and. geothermal reservoir quality in the Hutton Sandstone of the Eromanga Basin, Australia. This formation is a prolific oil and gas producer and is known to have good reservoir quality in oil fields, typically associated with structural highs. The geothermal potential was recently tested by the Celsius-1 well in the Nappamerri Trough.

Diagenetic control of reservoir quality in Chunchula Field (Smackover Formation), Mobile County, Alabama by David C. Kopaska-Merkel Download PDF EPUB FB2

The Ordos Basin, which is located in the western part of the North China Plate, is a large intracontinental basin. It is a gentle west-dipping monocline with dip angles less than 1°(Zou et al., ), and is divided into six first-order structural units including the Yimeng Uplift, the Weibei Uplift, the Western Edge Thrust Belt, the Jinxi Flexural Fold Belt, the Tianhuan Depression and the Cited by: 3.

diagenesis and reservoir quality is vastly investigated and documented (Reed et al., ), the major factors influencing diagenesis are not completely understood and diagenetic alterations in reservoir properties remain largely unpredictable (Molenaar, ).

Since diversity of diagenetic processes and products is very high in clastic. Even after pronounced diagenetic alteration the depositional setting remains as an important control on overall reservoir quality. Aeolian dunes and dry aeolian sandflat deposits remain the best potential reservoirs even under deep burial.

Diagenesis Processes Impact on Reservoir Quality in Carbonate Yamama Formation /Faihaa Oil Field Article in Iraqi Journal of Science 61(1) February with 7 Reads How we measure 'reads'. implications in understanding diagenetic processes that affect reservoir quality in a carbonate reservoir.

Based on the integration of geological, petrophysical and isotope data as well as wireline logs, main reservoir controls were identified. The effect of each factor has been discussed in detail.

In this regard, the Permo-Triassic (Upper. A.S. ALSHARHAN, A.E.M. NAIRN, in Sedimentary Basins and Petroleum Geology of the Middle East, Shuaiba Formation. Reservoir quality of the Shuaiba Formation depends upon two parameters: (a) texture and depositional setting; and (b) porosity modification by diagenetic processes.

The original sedimentary composition and texture strongly influence the effect of diagenesis upon these sediments. Sedimentological subsurface study of X-well and K-well reservoir sand bodies located in the Niger Delta was carried out to determine the influence of depositional environment and diagenetic control on the reservoir characteristics.

Lithofacies analysis reveals the presence of sandstones, siltstones, mudstones and heterolithics. Based on the detailed sedimentological description, wire line.

Good correlation exists between reservoir quality and volume of cements for samples from nodular-cementation and primary-carbonate-grain diagenetic facies. Samples from other diagenetic facies can also be grouped into distinct areas on a cross-plot of porosity versus volume of cements.

The Smackover is the most prolific hydrocarbon-producing formation in Alabama and is an important hydrocarbon reservoir from Florida to Texas. In this report Smackover hydrocarbon reservoirs in southwest Alabama are described.

Abstract: Prediction of reservoir quality is challenging due to complexities caused by pore geometry. Here diagenesis plays an important role in providing a better understanding of the controls on reservoir quality.

This research focuses on determination of pore geometry and diagenetic alterations in the Nyalau Formation, Borneo. At these depths, reservoir quality is a critical risk factor. Petrographic study of onshore Wilcox sandstones, combined with burial-history modeling, provides insight into the main controls on regional variation of reservoir quality.

Wilcox sandstones were sourced by continental-scale drainage systems that terminated in deltas in Texas and. Relationship between reservoir diagenetic evolution and petroleum emplacement in the Ula Field, North Sea Article (PDF Available) in Marine and Petroleum Geology 10(3) June with.

Establish an appropriate modeling strategy for building predictive simulations of reservoir quality. Understand the basics of how reservoir quality models can be combined with basin analysis and static reservoir models to create 2D and 3D visualizations of reservoir quality.

Determine the limitations and uncertainties inherent in diagenetic models. ABSTRACT The largest non-associated gas reserve of the world is hosted by the Upper Dalan–Kangan (Upper Khuff equivalent) Permo-Triassic carbonate–evaporite successions.

Detailed characterization of these strata in the South Pars field has shown that the reservoir properties are a function of both sedimentary and diagenetic processes at the field scale. For clay minerals in reservoir rocks, their presence has an important impact upon reservoir properties such as porosity and permeability and upon those measured physical data that are used to evaluate reservoir quality.

Geologists use clay minerals information to decipher the burial diagenetic process and reveal the pore type and pore evolution. potential reservoir quality and diagenetic processes have played key role. Examples of diagenetic processes, principal porosity types, and reservoir potential are given below (Plates 18 to 21).

Shoaling cycles ended during minor regressive stages. Reservoir quality is critical in tight gas exploration. A systematic study of the petrological, petrophysical, and diagenetic characteristics of the Shanxi Formation sandstones in the north‐eastern Ordos Basin (China) was undertaken to characterize the pore system of these tight sandstones and recognize the distribution of reservoirs favourable for hydrocarbon accumulation.

ABSTRACT The carbonate-dominated Albian to Turonian succession is one of the key petroleum systems of the Arabian Plate. It is dominated by shallow water platform carbonates that were deposited in a shallow epeiric sea on the margins of Neotethys.

In general, the reservoirs in this succession have high porosities but exhibit heterogeneous permeabilities.
