Paleocave Carbonate Reservoirs: Origins, Burial-Depth Modifications, Spatial Complexity, and Reservoir Implications
Download Full Text
Paleocave systems form an important class of carbonate reservoirs that are products of near-surface karst processes and later burial compaction and diagenesis. Features and origins of fractures, breccias, and sediment fills associated with paleocave reservoirs have been studied in modern and ancient cave systems. Information about such cave systems is used in this paper to reconstruct the general evolution of paleocave reservoirs and their associated scale, pore networks, and spatial complexities.
