Biostratigraphy in Production and Development Geology by R. W. Jones, M. D. Simmons

By R. W. Jones, M. D. Simmons

Within the creation instead of the exploration area, biostratigraphic and similar recommendations are used to deal with reservoir-scale difficulties comparable to precise correlation, interpretation of depositional setting, geometry, connectivity and compartmentalisation, and reserves estimation and optimisation of restoration. This publication files contemporary advances that biostratigraphy has made in construction and improvement geology. It serves to demonstrate to non-biostratigraphers the aptitude applicability of biostratigraphy during this zone, and to inspire biostratigraphers to extra discover and review this strength.
