Matrix Porosity is Important in Fracture Carbonate Reservoirs

Why matrix porosity is important in fracture carbonate reservoirs. Fracture reservoirs with minimal effective matrix porosity tend to form in deep water carbonates such as the late Cretaceous Shiranish Formation in the Middle East and Cretaceous basinal carbonates in the Sureste Basin in Mexico...

Guide to understanding karst reservoirs or prospects

A quick guide to understanding the overall structure of your karst reservoir or prospect. This diagram summarises how the duration of exposure influences the architecture of karst reservoirs including the relative abundance and types of matrix and macroporosity, their layering vs. vertical connectivity and ...
