Download E-books Quantitative Diagenesis: Recent Developments and Applications to Reservoir Geology PDF
By B. W. Sellwood (auth.), Andrew Parker, Bruce W. Sellwood (eds.)
Reservoirs in general encompass sandstones or carbonates showing heterogeneities as a result of a variety of elements. a few of these shaped depositionally (e.g. as channels, palaeosols, clay seams or salts), others can be diagenetic in beginning (e.g. carbonate or silica cemented zones, authigenic clays, karstic surfaces). The severity with which diagenesis impacts rock platforms effects from the interaction among the diagenetic strategy itself and the timescale over which it operated.
The e-book presents a wide-ranging evaluation of diagenetic techniques and responses in calcareous, argillaceous, arenaceous and carbon-rich (microbial and natural) sedimentary structures. It introduces diagenetic strategies, reports latest wisdom, and indicates how current qualitative methods will be built in additional quantitative methods. a number of chapters think about mass stability calculations and the temporal and spatial elements of diagenetic methods. it really is designated, as a textbook, in offering one of these breadth of diagenetic topic diversity and such intensity of assurance in each one subject. It presents a resource reference for complicated scholars and execs energetic in reservoir and aquifer stories.
