Onshore & Coastal Waters South LA. Miocene Regional Study

Gulf of Mexico Onshore

REGIONAL CORE STUDY OF THE MIOCENE IN SOUTH LOUISIANA AND COASTAL WATERS - Available in RAPID

The reservoir quality of Miocene sandstones is highly variable and dependent on depositional environment and burial diagenesis, with the latter of these two factors being rather pronounced considering the wide range in burial depths (i.e., 2,000 to 23,500 feet). The depositional and reservoir quality aspects of the Miocene section can best be addressed by the analysis of conventional cores.

The objective of this study is to provide operators with detailed geological, petrophysical, and engineering characterization and evaluation of the Miocene section of onshore and coastal waters in south Louisiana from specific biostratigraphic zones. The following analyses were conducted and evaluated on conventional cores from fifty (50) wells.

  • Core description, core photography, and interpretation of depositional environments
  • Definition and evaluation of Miocene sandstone texture, mineralogy, diagenetic, and pore system properties
  • The calibration of log-derived petrophysical properties to core-derived data
  • Measure and evaluate, through a series of special core analysis tests, various log and fluid-flow petrophysical properties

Individual well reports are provided and a final report. The final report addresses the geological, petrophysical, and engineering data that have been compiled and evaluated to provide an overview and summary of Miocene rock properties significant to exploration and exploitation activities. Specific attention has been given to the definition and understanding of the spectrum of reservoir rock types and the factors that control reservoir quality, including lithofacies, depositional environments, and sandstone diagenesis.
