John R. Farver, Advisor Charles M. Onasch, Co-Advisor Natural Pocono Sandstone and synthetic quartz crystals, crushed and sieved (125250um), have been used to experimentally evaluate changes in the rate and nature of quartz cementation under hydrothermal conditions. Experiments were carried out from 1 hour to 5 weeks at temperatures of 300-600°C and at 150 MPa confining pressure to simulate cementation conditions analogous to a quartz reservoir at depth. Experimental charges consisted of AlCl3… CONTINUE READING
