Sedimentation Model of Rocks of the Pokur Formation: Basis for the Prediction of Filtration-Volumetric Characteristics (Upper Cretaceous, West Siberia)



The HC-rich Upper Cretaceous rocks in the West Siberian petroliferous basin comprise genetically heterogeneous sediments, resulting in the specificity of morphology, structure, and properties of natural reservoirs therein. One of the possible techniques for more reliable predictions of reservoir rock characteristics is the utilization of results of sedimentation modeling based on the complex interpretation of borehole and seismic data. The paper presents an example of the realization of such approach for refining the structure of oil-and-gas pools in the Pokur Formation of the Russko-Chasel megaswell.
