These dip-closed prospects target the same good quality Upper Cretaceous deepwater turbidite reservoirs as penetrated in the Murombe-1 well and are modelled to have received hydrocarbon charge from the proven, excellent quality Aptian marine source rocks identified in both the Wingat-1 and Murombe-1 wells.
The deltaic sandstone of the Khojak Formation, turbidite succession of the Panjgur Formation and molasse strata of the Muree Formation (Himalayan fore lands) have recorded outstandingly similar detrital modes (Critelli and De Rosa, 1987; Critelli et al.
The nine new patterns explore trend-setting textures and colors, from terraqueous pastels to the deepest ruby red, in a wide variety of textures like Marbled Cork, rafa Turbidite and vinyl Lucerne.
Rapid subsidence of the graben floor accommodated thick syn-rift deposits of Turbidite facies.
Chang 7 reservoir is a deep-water turbidite fan sedimentary system with developed turbidite sand body; it is the central horizon of the Zhenbei area (Lu et al.
The Mesozoic-Tertiary cover bed presents greater lithological diversity, although the areas closest to the axis have a predominance of limestone, dolomite, marl, marly limestone, sandstone, clay--with and without evaporites--, lutite, conglomerate and turbidite (Fig.
This facies forms the basal divisions of turbidites in the Cutri Formation representing the coarsest section of turbidites, which shows parts of the Bouma (Ta, Tb) and Lowe (S1) turbidite sequences.
This mountainous region is composed almost entirely of deep-marine, mostly non-fossiliferous distal turbidite flysch strata--particularly the southern portion, believed to have been deposited into a subducting trench between the Indian and Sunda Plates (Bannert et al.
In 2007 a project was started to work with DZ in Northern Venezuela, sampling Cretaceous Passive Margin and Tertiary turbidite formations [1, 2].
Gradual change of microfacies, the lack of main barrier reef and turbidite deposit in the inner parts of the platform, and the presence of redeposited sediment in the distal part of the platform suggested the distally steepened ramp environment.
Discoveries to date are stratigraphic traps comprising Turonian and Campanian turbidite fans drilled in water depths of 500-2,500 metres.
