The Southern Chotts and Jeffara Basins are situated within the Saharan Domain of Central Tunisia, North Africa. The Southern Chotts Basin hosts reservoirs within the Triassic, Permian and Ordovician units that contain significant hydrocarbon accumulations whilst the Jeffara Basin contains outcrop analogues of the same hydrocarbon­bearing...

As the world’s population continues to increase, the demand for energy also increases. However, the use of fossil fuel energy has resulted in disadvantageous impacts for humans and the Earth. This condition becomes a good momentum to find a clean and more sustainable energy resources, given the fact that fossil fuel energy is a non-renewable...

This report contains the results of the two thesis studies that finalise a combined MSc--programs of Reservoir Geology and Science Communication. The first part of the report comprises the multi-scale data (kilometers to meters scale) analysis of a) the large--scale architecture of the subsurface Daly Waters Arch which was obtained from seismic...

Subsidence is affecting different parts of the Netherlands. The strongest subsidence is observed in the province of Groningen due to ongoing natural gas extraction. Subsidence is also observed at several locations in the province of South Holland, where the processes of peat oxidation, soil compaction and the withdrawal of groundwater are at the...

High temperature aquifer thermal energy storage (HT-ATES) can potentially solve the mismatch between heat supply and demand. It can provide a large scale seasonal heat storage solution. Thereby it enables an increase in full load hours of the base heat source, which can benefit project performance on both costs and emissions. However, the...

The structural evolution, phases and amount of deformation, and the strain distribution of the sedimentary cover of a geologically complex area of 270 km2 in the French subalpine chains (Southeast of France; in the surroundings of the village La Motte-Chalancon) were deduced from the modelling of two folded and faulted competent layers ...

More than 30% of the world’s hydrocarbon reserves are located in carbonate reservoirs, and this percentage is likely to increase, as a result of discoveries of new giant oil fields in carbonate rocks, generically named “Pre-salt layers”. However, there are still some problems in understanding karst systems that still unresolved. The karst caves...

In geological models, 3D surfaces are used for representing subsurface structures and the interfaces between stratigraphic layers. Simulations based on this data require the surfaces to accurately describe how geological layers are connected in order to produce valuable results. Due to the process through which this data is acquired and...

The decrease in the production of hydrocarbons in combination with a growing urgency to reduce carbon emissions drives a rapid study and application of geothermal energy in the Netherlands. The produced heat from the low enthalpy geothermal energy can be used for heating up the buildings and greenhouses. A doublet system is used in the...

In the Netherlands, the geothermal application is implemented to produce heat from a sedimentary aquifer in the subsurface for greenhouses and district heating. The most commonly used configuration is a doublet of wells, in which one injection- and one production well is drilled to produce warm water and re-inject cool water in the same target...

Dilatant fractures and faults in carbonate rocks play an important role as fluid path for many applications. However, multidimensional characterization of these fractures remains a challenge due to structural complexity in multiscale. The progressive deformation of dilatant fracture in normal fault system from physical models are imaged in 3D...

The geological history of the McArthur Basin (NT Australia) is poorly understood. It consists of five onshore Paleo- to Mesoproterozoic packages with mainly siliciclastic and carbonate rocks, with cumulative thicknesses up to 15km. The basin contains the world’s oldest hydrocarbons, principally hosted in unconventional...

Geological surveying is a common practice performed by geologists nowadays. Determining layer orientation parameters and identifying folds are examples of features needed in order to create a geological map or model of the (sub) surface. Surveying is expensive and time consuming, therefore such survey is recently being investigated and...

The cities of Tenggarong and Samarinda in East Kalimantan are in need of a new source of drinking water, since their current source, the Mahakam river, is said to be polluted. The client of this project, Arsari Enviro Industri, owns a large concession named ITCI of a partly degraded forest 90 kilometers East of Samarinda. This report suggests...

An understanding about geomechanical condition is necessarily needed in order to examine the state of stress of a subsurface area. Geomechanical modeling is one of the method to understand the mechanical condition and has been used in various subsurface-related industries such as oil and gas, geothermal, and CO2 storage. The principal stress...

Growing interest has been expressed the last decades regarding the Late Cenozoic, gas-bearing sediments of Southern North Sea Basin. Comprising the shallow subsurface of the Dutch offshore sector, these sediments have<br/>been deposited by Eridanos fluvio-deltaic system, draining the Fennoscandian and Baltic shield through the present Baltic Sea...

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,...

The Huesca fluvial fan contains a low gradient fluvial system with well-exposed, 3D outcrops. An outcrop study of low-sinuous deposits aims to provide a deterministic reservoir model that predicts correlation lengths, nesting and reservoir potential of thin-bedded fluvial reservoir sandstone in an overall low net-to-gross setting. To correlate...

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...
