Biostratigraphy in Production and Development Geology by R. W. Jones, M. D. Simmons

By R. W. Jones, M. D. Simmons

Within the creation rather than the exploration enviornment, biostratigraphic and similar strategies are used to handle reservoir-scale difficulties resembling unique correlation, interpretation of depositional atmosphere, geometry, connectivity and compartmentalisation, and reserves estimation and optimisation of restoration. This e-book files fresh advances that biostratigraphy has made in creation and improvement geology. It serves to demonstrate to non-biostratigraphers the capability applicability of biostratigraphy during this quarter, and to motivate biostratigraphers to extra discover and review this power.

Available palynofloral records are sparse, but they suggest that euhaline conditions may only have been reached around the MFS level, with the HST supporting lowdiversity dinocyst assemblages and acmes of the freshwater alga Botryococcus sp.

The increase in GR corresponds to an increase in shaliness as shown by the other lithology logs. 2 MFS does not appear to have been differentiated by Partington et al.
