Hydrocarbon Seals by Moller-Pedersen P., Koestler A.G.

By Moller-Pedersen P., Koestler A.G.

In January 1996 a complete of 270 convention individuals amassed for three days in Trondheim, Norway, to target and to debate the advanced subject of hydrocarbon seals really with regards to deformation zones and to caprocks.The convention was once the 1st in Norway and one of many first in Europe to solely tackle this extremely important topic. the aim of the convention was once to give essentially the most fresh study effects, to set up state of the art with recognize to knowing hydrocarbon seals and to debate the place to head from right here to discover the various keys to winning destiny exploration and improved oil and fuel restoration. Out of the provided papers and posters, 17 are compiled and released during this quantity. those supply an exceptional assessment of and an advent to the various points lined in the course of the fruitful days in Trondheim.

Because the population of small faults around larger structures will control the distribution of juxtapositions and fault rocks, detailed characterisation of the offsets is important to seal analysis. Fig. 11 illustrates the population characteristics of three fault zones with different offsets. The plot illustrates the increasing population with a similar slope (or power-law, fractal relationship) for the central part of the measured populations. The identification of fractal characteristics is not a simple process and a recent work suggests that using a straight line fit to the log cumulative population data can be misleading.

The critical role of the clay content in fault rock development can be assessed more accurately if phyllosilicate content logs are generated from sedimentary analysis of reservoir stratigraphies. , kaolinite) may not be a simple process. - Accurate permeability measurements of fault rocks as well as characterisation of capillary entry pressure data of fault rocks requires different equipment and procedures than those applicable to high permeability well sorted sandstones with large and unimodal pore size distributions.
