Oil and gas reservoirs worldwide are dominated by sedimentogenic clastic rock and carbonate rock strata. Therefore, it is necessary to study the relationships among the various sedimentary environments of petroleum reservoirs, paleogeographic conditions, spatial distribution features of sedimentary systems, and various sedimentary facies belts to build a reservoir depositional model and geological model.
