By Robert M. Sneider (auth.), John H. Barwis, John G. McPherson, Joseph R. J. Studlick (eds.)

Sandstone Petroleum Reservoirs offers an built-in, multidisciplinary method of the geology of sandstone oil and fuel reservoirs. Twenty-two case experiences related to quite a few depositional settings, tectonic provinces, and burial/diagenetic histories emphasize depositional controls on reservoir structure, petrophysical houses, and construction functionality. An introductory part offers standpoint to the character of reservoir characterization and highlights the real questions that destiny reports have to handle. A "reservoir precis" following every one case learn aids the reader in gaining easy access to the most features of every reservoir. This casebook is seriously illustrated, and so much info haven't been formerly released. The meant viewers includes a large diversity of working towards earth scientists, together with petroleum geologists, geophysicists, and engineers. Readers will worth the combination of geological as opposed to engineering pursuits supplied right here, and should be enabled to enhance exploration and creation results.

In the Peco area, the interpretation of the depositional environment of the shale underlying the sharp-based fluvial sandstones is uncertain. If it is a marine shale, this would suggest that a relative sealevel drop occurred. However, the low confidence in the interpretation of the depositional environment of the shale prohibits the conclusion that a basin-wide erosional surface exists. A regional stratigraphic correlation of this contact is needed to test the hypothesis that this contact may represent a sequence boundary, perhaps at the base of an incised valley system.
