ABSTRACT

The Zechstein 2 Carbonate reservoir is part of the Basal Zechstein Unit, which developed in the Previous HitnortheastNext Hit Netherlands mainly as an anhydrite platform at the southern fringe of the Southern Permian Basin. The facies within the Zechstein 2 Carbonate Member reflect platform, slope, and basinal settings. The subsurface Previous HitdataNext Hit collected in the exploration and development of the Zechstein fields have led to a detailed sedimentological model for the Zechstein 2 Carbonate Member.

Prospects in the Zechstein 2 Carbonate Member are seismically defined as Previous HitstructuralNext Hit highs at the Top Zechstein 2 Anhydrite level. As exploration moves towards the search for more subtle traps, Previous Hit3-DNext Hit Previous HitseismicNext Hit Previous HitdataNext Hit become indispensable.

Basal Zechstein isochore maps determined on Previous Hit3-DNext Hit Previous HitseismicNext Hit volumes display the topography of the Basal Zechstein platform. Using the sedimentological model, these maps are used to estimate gross reservoir thickness. Variations in reservoir parameters, especially porosity, of the Zechstein 2 Carbonate Member are reflected in the Previous HitseismicNext Hit response. Through synthetic Previous HitseismicNext Hit modeling, Previous Hit3-DNext Hit Previous HitseismicNext Hit Previous HitdataNext Hit allow spatial prediction of average reservoir porosity. The Collendoornerveen exploration well demonstrates the successful application of the quantitative interpretation techniques.
