Diagenetic Reservoirs-2: Data integration vital in exploring for diagenetic hydrocarbon traps

11/21/2005
Basement-involved faults, particularly faults that are reactivated over time, form some of the most important zones of vertical permeability.Some of the most significant of these faults are developed above boundaries that separate differing basement terranes. Because these terrane boundaries typically juxtapose basements with different compositions, crustal thicknesses and heat flow regimes, they are especially prone to minor reactivation. These zones, as well as other basement-involved faults, are most likely to be reactivated during periods of orogenic activity that commonly coincide with periods of enhanced basinal fluid flow.21Since the orientation and magnitude of stresses at the tim...
