Deep-Water Processes and Facies Models: Implications for Sandstone Petroleum Reservoirs
Preface. Acknowledgements. 1. Introduction and Process Sedimentology. 1.1 Introduction. 1.2 Process Sedimentology. 1.3 Synopsis. 2. History of Deep-water Research (1885-2005). 2.1 Introduction. 2.2Expand
50 years of the turbidite paradigm (1950s—1990s): deep-water processes and facies models—a critical perspective
Abstract Under the prevailing turbidite paradigm, the term turbidite (i.e., deposits of turbidity currents with Newtonian rheology and turbulent state) is used very loosely and is commonly applied toExpand
Significance of Coniferous Rain Forests and Related Organic Matter in Generating Commercial Quantities of Oil, Gippsland Basin, Australia
Contrary to the conventional belief that humic coal generates primarily gas, 3 billion bbl of recoverable oil has been discovered in the humic coaly succession of the fluviodeltaic Latrobe GroupExpand
Fan-deltas and braid deltas: Varieties of coarse-grained deltas
Two types of coarse-grained deltas are recognized: fan-deltas and braid deltas. Fan-deltas are gravel-rich deltas formed where an alluvial fan is deposited directly into a standing body of water fromExpand
Submarine fans: Characteristics, models, classification, and reservoir potential
Abstract Submarine-fan sequences are important hydrocarbon reservoirs throughout the world. Submarine-fan sequences may be interpreted from bed-thickness trends, turbidite facies associations, logExpand
Experiments on subaqueous sandy gravity flows: The role of clay and water content in flow dynamics and depositional structures
Deep-water deposits consisting mainly of massive sand are commonly identified as deposits of turbidity currents (i.e., turbidites). Speculation has risen in recent years as to whether some of theseExpand
Sequence of structures in fine-grained turbidites: Comparison of recent deep-sea and ancient flysch sediments
Abstract A comparative study of the sequence of sedimentary structures in ancient and modern fine-grained turbidites is made in three contrasting areas. They are (1) Holocene and Pleistocene deep-seaExpand
The Bouma Sequence and the turbidite mind set
Abstract Conventionally, the Bouma Sequence [Bouma, A.H., 1962. Sedimentology of some Flysch Deposits: A Graphic Approach to Facies Interpretation. Elsevier, Amsterdam, 168 pp.], composed of Ta, Tb,Expand
New Perspectives on Deep-water Sandstones: Origin, Recognition, Initiation, and Reservoir Quality
This handbook is vital for understanding the origin of deep-water sandstones, emphasizing sandy-mass transport deposits (SMTDs) and bottom-current reworked sands (BCRSs) in petroleum reservoirs. ThisExpand
The Tsunamite Problem
The genetic term tsunamite is used for a potpourri of deposits formed from a wide range of processes (overwash surges, backwash flows, oscillatory flows, combined flows, soft-sediment deformation,Expand
