Diagenesis of Sedimentary Rocks

2018-2019
Dit vak wordt in het Engels aangeboden. Omschrijvingen kunnen daardoor mogelijk alleen in het Engels worden weergegeven.

Doel vak

• To recognize the diagenetic processes and products.
• To familiarize yourself with the most common analytical
techniques that are relevant for the study of the diagenetic history and
the fluid flow pattern of reservoir rocks.
• To understand the link between diagenesis and rock properties.
• To gain an overview of applications of diagenetic studies in oil
industry.

At the end of this course, you should be able to:
• Characterize paleoenvironments during and just after the
deposition of sediments.
• Understand sedimentary basin evolution (burial, fluids
circulation) through time.
• Predict quality of carbonate reservoirs.

Inhoud vak

The course will cover carbonates and their diagenetic products and is
concerned primarily with the preservation potential of the main
carbonate and detrital phases under marine, meteoric and burial
diagenetic settings. As a consequence, the porosity evolution in
sedimentary rocks will be of relevance to this course. This has both
fundamental and applied aspects. The course will involve theoretical
knowledge as well as case studies.
