Facies, depositional environments and reservoir properties of the albian age gas bearing sandstone of the ibhubesi oil field, orange basin, South Africa
(University of the Western Cape, 2009)
The Orange Basin was formed during the late Jurassic to early Cretaceous periods due to Gondwana breakup and rifting and later drifting apart of the African and South American plates. The basin consists of siliciclastic ...
Assessment of the effects of clay diagenesis on some petrophysical properties of lower cretaceous sandstones, block 3a, offshore orange basin South Africa
Clay diagenesis phenomenon and their effects on some petrophysical properties of lower cretaceous silliciclastic sandstones, offshore Orange basin have been established. Previous studies on Orange basin revealed that ...
Integration of petrographic and petrophysical logs analyses to characterize and assess reservoir quality of the lower cretaceous sediments in the Orange basin, offshore south africa
(University of the Western Cape, 2017)
Commercial hydrocarbon production relies on porosity and permeability that defines the storage capacity and flow capacity of the resevoir. To assess these parameters, petrographic and petrophysical log analyses has been ...
The effects of minerals on reservoir properties in block 3A and 2C, within the orange basin, South Africa.
(University of the Western Cape, 2018)
The reservoir quality of the Orange Basin, offshore South Africa is known to be immensely impaired by the presence of authigenic minerals. The collective effects of burial, bioturbation, compaction and chemical reactions ...
Geological modelling for carbon storage opportunities in the Orange Basin South Africa
(University of the Western Cape, 2019)
This study investigates the viability of the sedimentary deposits in the Northern Orange basin for carbon storage and sequestration. A combination of geological modelling, petrographic and geochemical techniques are used ...
