Sandstone Petroleum Reservoirs

File Size: 33.28 Mb

This book is about sandstone petroleum reservoirs and the influence of depositional environment on their architecture and performance. It is aimed at the wide range of earth scientists and engineers on whose expertise depends the discovery and production of oil and gas. The often disparate responsibilities of the many who are involved in these efforts mean that each discipline will usually consider a reservoir from a very different perspective. A geophysicist may view it in terms
of acoustic properties or reflection characteristics. A sedimentary petrologist may see it solely as the mineral species that frame individual pores. A reservoir engineer might consider it primarily in terms of its drainage characteristics. Efficient management of the hydrocarbon resources a reservoir contains urgently requires close interaction among these disciplines. The most appropriate way to encourage this interaction is to examine in detail a shared focal point, the hydrocarbon accumulation itself. We hope the examples presented here will strengthen the too-often isolated approaches of exploration and production geologists, geophysicists, and petroleum engineers.

This book is therefore organized around the oil or gas field as a vehicle for understanding their reservoirs and is presented as a series of integrated case studies that demonstrate depositional influences at different scales. At regional and prospect levels, depositional origin is shown to control sand-body orientation, geometry and trap style. At intrareservoir scales, depositional events are documented as the mosaic of porosity and permeability zones and baffles that define the sand body's facies architecture. Within individual flow units, storage and delivery capacities and response to completion and stimulation techniques are strongly influenced by depositional as well as diagenetic texture and mineralogy.
