Project summary introduction slope and basin clastic reservoirs in sandstones of the delaware mountain group in the delaware basin of west texas and new mexico contained more than 18 billion barrels (bbbl) of oil at discovery.
Tectonic stress field wellbore failure occurs because the stress around the well exceeds the strength of the rock faults will slip when the ratio of shear to normal stress on the fault exceeds. A hydrocarbon filled reservoir will typically have high resistivity compared with shale and a water filled reservoirs sbl therefore has the unique potential of distinguishing between a. Fractured reservoir characterisation with emphasis on carbonates fractured reservoirs such as tight carbonates and basements set complex challenges to appraisal and development teams due to their high degree of heterogeneity and hard-to-predict reservoir quality.
