Advanced Petrographic Techniques enable us to evaluate the diagenetic overprint of your carbonate succession, providing key results such as timing of fluid flow and evolution of reservoir properties throughout the entire diagenetic history. Resultant diagenetic models are useful to optimise the understanding of rock types.
To achieve these studies, we follow a well-defined workflow integrating:
- Macroscopic qualitative and quantitative observations (cores and/or outcrops).
- Microscopic qualitative and quantitative investigations (observations on stained thin sections, cathodoluminescence, SEM).
- Geochemistry (stable C & O isotopes, Sr isotopes, trace/major elements) and thermometry (fluid inclusion analysis), keeping in mind the constraint provided by the sequence stratigraphic framework and burial history.
