This report presents the results of an integrated sedimentological, ichnological, stratigraphical and reservoir quality appraisal of five fields from the Campos Basin, Brazil.
The field areas under investigation include Albacora, Caratinga, Corvina, Pampo and Roncador. The project investigates the gross structural setting, stratigraphic development and sedimentary style of reservoir-scale building blocks together with primary and secondary controls on reservoir quality. A total of 1315.86m of detailed core logging has been undertaken together with new biostratigraphical analyses, petrographic analysis including SEM/XRD and conventional core analysis.
The aim of the study is to provide a comprehensive database of analogue data from these fields which is of specific relevance to exploration and operating companies assessing the prospectivity and commerciality of existing oil and gas fields and frontier exploration acreage within the Campos Basin. This data has been compiledto be an integral part of the assessment of geotechnical risk for current and future projects in the Campos Basin.
