Description:This comprehensive text and accompanying CD-ROM will provide the reader with an integrated overview of diagenesis and porosity evolution in carbonate petroleum reservoirs and ancient carbonate rock sequences. The initial chapters of this volume provide an overview of the carbonate sedimentologic system and the application of sequence stratigraphic concepts to carbonate rock sequences. The nature of carbonate porosity and its control by diagenesis is explored. Porosity classification schemes are detailed, compared, and their utility examined. The nature and characteristics of diagenetic environments and tools for their recognition in the ancient record are specified. The middle chapters of the book consist of a thorough examination of the major, surficial diagenetic environments, such as normal marine, evaporative marine and meteoric environments, emphasising porosity modifying processes illustrated by numerous case histories.
