New reserves are necessary to compensate the oil depletion of the giant fields in the Gulf of Mexico. This work covers a reservoir characterization workflow of Pliocene shallow marine deltaic sandstone deposits located in the south eastern Gulf Mexico. The traditional reservoir characterization workflow is considered a multidisciplinary...

Deltaic reservoirs are important reservoirs for the oil and gas production. Most of the hydrocarbons produced from deltaic reservoirs are obtained from the matrix or primary porosity. Besides primary porosity, secondary porosity, formed after deposition takes place, can have a positive contribution on hydrocarbon production. One of the processes...

Process-based numerical simulations in river delta modelling have demonstrated the importance of hydraulic and sedimentary forcing mechanisms on delta morphodynamics. Insights of these simulations on deltaic systems have a high potential to improve reservoir predictions in the industry. However, detailed morphological studies are typically...

To assess, and validate the most recent interpretations on the Panther Tongue\rq{}s depositional history we use the conceptual process-response model, 2Dstratsim. The focus of this study is on the Ksp040 parasequence which reflects the wave-dominated shoreface along the southern Wasatch Plateau. The associated Panther Tongue delta to the north...

Deltaic reservoirs are of great significance in both exploration and production of oil & gas and they have aroused increasing interest during the recent years. Coastal engineering deals with sediment transport on a millisecond and micron scale, while geology deals with sequence stratigraphy on a millenary and 10-100 km scale. However, relatively...

The Santo André Lagoon is one of many inlets and lagoons that can be found along the along the Atlantic coast of Portugal. These coastal systems have a large ecological value and are important for rich biodiversity. The Santo André Lagoon is part of a natural reserve that is officially under protection of the country. It has a rich flora and...

Deltares is currently involved with multiple Angolan companies to advice on several coastal projects along the Angolan coast, especially in the Luanda area. Luanda is expanding rapidly trying to keep up with its economic growth as such coastal projects like land reclamation occur often these days. Still there is little understanding of the...

A new approach in coastal maintenance is the application of a large scale nourishment as natural feeder of the coast. The Sand Motor constructed near Kijkduin on the Holland Coast is a pilot project of this new nourishment strategy. The objective of this research is to contribute to a better understanding of the sediment transport processes at...

The Panther Tongue is a fluvio-deltaic parasequence in the lower part of the Star Point Sandstone formation in the Wasatch Plateau, central Utah, deposited during the late Cretaceous period. The sedimentology of the Panther Tongue and adjacent beach ridges parasequence has been extensively described by Hwang & Heller (2002) and Hampson et al. ...

Green's function retrieval by seismic interferometry (SI) exists in a variety of forms. Many of the applications of SI allow the creation of new seismic traces by crosscorrelating a wavefield recorded at two separate locations. The sum of this operation over multiple sources results in the creation of a new signal such that one of the recording...

The hydrocarbon reservoirs that are relatively easy to find and produce are becoming increasingly more scarce. The geographical location and the internal complexity of the majority of the reservoirs that are brought into production necessitate extensive research of all the reservoir characteristics. One element in the array of research tools is...

Barrier islands are important features in the coastal zone, among others because they shelter the mainland from waves and storm surge. Thus, the degradation of barrier islands can pose a threat to coastal safety. Hence, there is a societal demand for understanding and predicting barrier island evolution. High energy events, such as storms and...

This is a numerical modelling study on the impact of dredging and disposal activities on the long-term morphological development of the Columbia River mouth (MCR). Dredging activities removed 120 Mm3 of sand from the MCR during the studied interval between 1958 and 1999. Only one-third of this volume was disposed in the active littoral zone....

As hydrocarbons become scarcer, submarine channelised slope systems have become a focus of exploration due to their reservoir potential. Outcrops of both levee-confined (Unit C) and entrenched (Unit D) channel systems are exposed in the Permian Fort Brown Formation, Karoo Basin, South Africa and have been extensively studied and interpreted....

In 2010, a realignment of the main channel of the Maumusson inlet, France, is observed. This breach of the ebb-delta is observed not long after a severe storm that afflicted the Charente-Maritime region in February 2010; Xynthia. A strong link between the breach and the Xynthia storm is expected: a storm event driven breach. In order to assess...

The most densely populated and economical most valuable areas in The Netherlands lie below mean sea level. These areas are protected against the sea by a coastal dune system. The vital importance of this dune system is reflected in the extensive collection of Dutch legal regulations that ensure the safety level of the dunes. Current safety...

The Lagos coast has been suffering high rates of erosion since the construction of three harbour moles, i.e. the West Mole, East Mole and the Training Mole, at the tidal inlet connecting the Lagos Lagoon to the South Atlantic Ocean. To provide for a permanent erosion mitigation measure and to create residential and commercial area for circa 400...

The stratigraphic and tectonic framework of the Brent Group and their respective depositional environments is well studied and documented in the literature. The lower progradational Brent deltaic sequence is the response of a high sediment supply rate outpacing the accommodation space rate caused by subsidence and an overall sea level rise stage...

In this study, a process-based, depth-averaged Delft3D hydrodynamic and morphologic model of the Wax Lake Delta in Atchafalaya Bay, Louisiana was developed to simulate a five year period of delta development. The purpose of this modeling effort was to test the ability of process-based modeling tools to successfully simulate typical delta...
