Carbonate production flourished at this time and resulted in the deposition of limestone both on the platforms at the margins of the basin, and as reefs on subtle intra-basinal highs. High quality carbonate reservoirs are common in the south of the basin, but are less frequent in the Jambi sub-basin to the north. This is due to increasedAuthor: M. N. Alamsyah, Bambang W.

The book is a very good overview of all aspects of carbonate reservoirs. Its strength lies in its clear didactical form and its focus on petrophysical aspects. The weaknesses are the lack of color photographs of carbonate rocks and thin sections, as well as a poor treatment of the sequence stratigraphy of by:

        Collectively studies have shown that carbonate facies are commonly the product of processes that are active in their depositional setting. Water depth, winds, waves, currents, temperature, water chemistry, and biologic action all affect the character of the carbonate formed. Diagenesis, which also plays a major role in forming and modifying the facies that are found in the subsurface, are.

The U.S. Geological Survey conducted a sedimentation survey of Lago Lucchetti, Yauco, Puerto Rico, in –14 in cooperation with the Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority. This dataset in shapefile format was generated from the survey data. The survey updated previous surveys, conducted inand provided accurate information regarding reservoir storage capacity and sedimentation rate.

Sediment is filling Lago Yahuecas, a reservoir built to divert water to Lago Guayo for power generation, at an average rate of 2 percent per year. During March 10 to 13,the U.S. Geological Survey conducted a bathymetric survey of Lago Yahuecas to determine the amount of sediment deposited and sedimentation rate in the reservoir.

Also, reservoir sediments were cored and sampled to. Purchase Geology and hydrogeology of carbonate islands, Volume 54 - 1st Edition.

Introduction: Puerto Rico is an island situated in the plate boundary zone between the Caribbean and the North American Plates. This is a geologically fascinating, tectonically active region, where the Caribbean Plate has over-ridden the North American Plate and is now sliding past it with strike-slip motion.

The details of this tectonic interaction are poorly understood, largely because much. Purchase Carbonate Reservoir Characterization: A Geologic-Engineering Analysis, Part I, Volume 30 - 1st Edition.

The focus is on limestones and dolostones and the sediments from which they are derived. The approach is general and universal and draws heavily on fundamental discoveries, arresting interpretations, and keystone syntheses that have been developed over the last five decades.
