Abstract

Petrographic and reservoir characteristic studies (porosity and permeability measurements) were carried out on 447 core samples from seven boreholes penetrating concealed Previous HitunconformitiesNext Hit in England and the Western Desert of Iraq. In England, the Previous HitunconformitiesNext Hit occur at the following boundaries: (a) Cretaceous/Devonian; (b) Lower Lias/Rhaeto-Liassic/Beds of unknown age/Carboniferous Limestone Series; (c) Triassic/Lower Carboniferous; (d) Triassic/Upper Coal Measures (equivalent to Upper Pennsylvanian); and (e) Triassic/Permo-Trias/Permian. The borehole in the Western Desert of Iraq encountered five Previous HitunconformitiesTop, in successions ranging in age from the Carboniferous to the Cretaceous.
