Reservoir quality controls on Rotliegend fluvio-aeolian wells in Germany and the Netherlands, Southern Permian Basin – Impact of grain coatings and cements

Busch, Benjamin; Hilgers, Christoph; Adelmann, Dirk

Abstract (englisch):
Reservoir quality in sandstones can be a function of temperature, pressure, and chemical alterations over time. Some intrinsic properties of sandstones can additionally impact the evolution of reservoir quality. The detrital composition, depositional environment, and properties controlled thereby, dictate some of the diagenetic changes. Extrinsic processes, like external fluids, e.g. from hydrothermal events or dewatering of clay minerals, can additionally result in changes of reservoir quality. One of these properties are grain coatings on quartz grains, which can strongly affect pore cementation by quartz overgrowths. To predict and infer the quality of undrilled reservoirs, constraints are needed to predict their occurrence. We analyse two reservoir settings in the Southern Permian Basin and delineate the impact of depositional systems, lithologies, detrital and authigenic composition on reservoir quality and with regard to grain coatings. Results highlight the importance of diagenetic alterations and the source area in regards to burial development in different parts of the Southern Permian Basin. Samples from the Rotliegend Bahnsen Sandstone Member from Germany and the Slochteren Sandstone Formation from the Netherlands have been petrographically and petrophysically analysed and linked to depositional environments. ... mehr
