Dish Structures in Some Paleocene Deep-Sea Sandstones (Norwegian Sector, North Sea): Origin of the Dish-Forming Clays and their Effect on Reservoir Quality

Andrew Hurst, Antony T. Buller


The clay mineralogy of dish-structured sandstones supports the intrastratal, rather than the interstratal, redistribution of clays during the formation of dish structures. Authigenic Fe-chlorite is the predominant constituent clay mineral in the dish structures. Interbedded mudstones comprise illite/smectite with minor illite and chlorite. Dish-structured horizons cause a marked reduction in average vertical permeability.
