During World War II West Papua was the scene of war between the Axis and the Allies. In this case, it was the Japanese on one side Australian and US forces on the other. After the war a lot of equipment was left in the jungle and because of the low population density on the island some material can still be found to this day. Planes and vehicles...

Floodplain deposits in arid, endorheic basins constitute a large proportion of fluvial stratigraphy. The reservoir potential of this stratigraphy was previously discarded. Thin-bedded, potential reservoir sandstones present in the stratigraphy have poor detectability on conventional well logs and possess relatively low reservoir quality. However...

The Moroccan passive margin has been the objective of a variety of studies to investigate the petroleum potential and to locate play systems in the offshore and partly onshore Agadir-Essaouira basin. These basins are largely dependent on the structural development of Atlas mountains, being characterised by different phases of tectonic rifting,...

Using a complete 2D full-elastic seismic simulation from geological modelling, to 2D seismic data forward modelling, to non-linear full-waveform inversion – the interaction of various carbonate lithofacies are observed. Specifically, three different environments of deposition within a carbonate shelf along with their pore-types ranging from...

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...

The goals of this thesis were to understand the impact of uncertainties and modeling methods on the resulting stress and strain patterns and to see how 3D stress patterns can be linked to what was seen in the field. In 3 types of models simulations were done to carry out this goal. These are the 2D perturbation model, the 2D static model, and...

Fracture modelling is growing more important due to the effect they have on the flow of the hydrocarbons. The traditional approach for fracture modelling is a combination of either curvature analysis and/or statistical extrapolation of fracture information from well or borehole logging. This approach however does not fully reflect the geological...

A majority of the volume of alluvial sequences consists of fine-grained floodplain deposits (Kraus, 1987; Kraus & Gwinn, 1997). Traditionally, these deposits are seen as non-reservoir rock since their permeability is very low. This research shows that crevasse splay deposits that occur in these floodplain fines can comprise stacked complexes of...

Crevasse splay complexes in floodplain sequences are potential low net-to-gross tough gas reservoirs. The porosity and permeability of these reservoirs is low, but lateral amalgamation by compensational stacking can create extensive lobe-shaped sediment bodies with reservoir potential. The aim of this thesis is to characterize the development of...

This project investigated the occurrence of compartmentalization by claystone interbeds and its impact on connectivity in the fluvial units of the Triassic Argilo-Gréseux Supérieur (TAGS) formation in the Toual field, Algeria. The TAGS is located in a N-S oriented anticline, with faults part of a flower structure acting as hydrocarbon migration...

Bihar is a densely populated area located in the Middle Ganga Plain (MGP) in India. The Ganges' sinuous nature in the MGP created a vast amount of point bar structures within the floodplain. In 2003 it was discovered that high arsenic concentrations are present in the shallow groundwater aquifers, especially in the elevated point bars. According...

Several programs have been written to process laser scan data from two shoals in the Netherlands. The first makes a grid of heights, the second calculates deformations and makes plots. The third utilises a variogram to obtain information about the amplitude, direction and wavelength of tidal ripples, which are processed and plotted by a fourth...

The characteristics of natural fracture systems is very valuable information when considering exploiting a fractured subsurface oil /gas reservoir. Open fractures are like highways for fluid flow and knowing the orientation, length and intensity of these fractures will greatly improve the accuracy of fluid flow models. Linking fracture...

Secondary permeability created by fractures is an interesting property regarding reservoir purposes. In the Umbria-Marche Apennines these fractures have been digitized using software named Digifract. The goal of this research is to correlate these fractures to the lithology, and their relative position regarding the two main structures found in...

The fracture patterns in an outcrop of the Alima anticline in central Tunusia is investigated. A 3D model of the outcrop is made in Photoscan. The fractures are digitized in 3D using OpenPlot software. OpenPlot can automatically calculate the orientation of every fracture. The length has to be calculated in Excel. Stereonet is used for further...

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. ...

The fracture network of the Jandeíra Formation in the northeastern part of Brazil is controlled by two main (paleo-) stress fields. The first stress field, characterized by a NS-oriented compression, occurred from the Campanian to the Miocene. The second occurred from the Miocene to the Quaternary as an EW-oriented compression. In the western...

The geology in and around the Fiume Fiastrone valley (Umbria-Marche region, Italy) is controlled by a NW-SE striking fold and thrust belt of Neogene age. During a different stage SW-NE striking folds were created. The lithology in the area consists mainly of carbonates and carbonate shales of Mesozoic to Cenozoic age. The system has been...

This research focuses on fracture networks in sedimentary rocks within the Umbria-Marche fold-and-thrust belt in the Northern Apennines, Italy. The aim of this research is twofold, namely to correlate the geometry of fracture networks with tectonic position and lithology and to correlate the orientation of fracture networks with the origination...

This research has tried to find a relation between particle settling velocity and shape. This was done by taking the settling velocity log-contrast of a non-spherical particle and an equivalent spherical particle. This log-contrast should be the logarithmic function of a certain shape factor. Settling data of several shapes were taken from...
