Increasingly tight well spacing, multi-stage fracturing, and variations in subsurface rock fabric create unique challenges for every new horizontal well.
The sandstone of the Mughal Kot Formation exhibit reservoir heterogeneity based on the diagenetic features and overall rock fabric. The sandstones are modified by mechanical compaction, cementation (quartz overgrowth, calcite, dolomite and iron minerals).Glauconite is also present.
Its fine stripe Brighton Rock fabric in Blue Smartie shade is pounds 19.50 a metre.
The intact lateritic profile was mostly formed by weathering of granitoids and other rock types and these profiles commonly consist of sand and pisolitic gravels over lateritic duricrust (cemented ferruginous material), mottled and pallid zones (quartz and clay rich materials), saprolite and saprock (isovolumetrically weathered materials with retention of parent rock fabric), and rock (Anand and Paine 2002).
Non-isovolumetric weathering or pedoplasmation has also occurred in some saprolite, forming new fabrics at the expense of parent rock fabric (Anand and Paine 2002).
Preservation of parent rock fabric in saprolite due to in situ isovolumetric weathering (Nahon 1991) may be responsible for the higher values of dry and wet strength.
The rock representing analogue 2-02 differs strongly in either mineral composition or rock fabric.
28938 differs totally from analogue PL-367 either in mineral composition or rock fabric. Analogue 4-02 corresponds to core sample No.
Researchers in all fields concerned with rock fabric and deformation will find it useful.
The objectives of drilling the Nugget Zone were to target prospective areas of high-grade gold mineralization and to improve structural understanding by capturing structural measurement data on rock fabrics and gold-bearing quartz vein orientations.
Among the topics are integrating rock fabrics and stratigraphy for the petrophysical quantification of reservoir framework, calculating permeability and initial water saturations from wireline logs in a mature carbonate reservoir, and constructing and analyzing three-dimensional seismic porosity inversion models.
