Evaluating the impact of hierarchical deep-water slope channel architecture on fluid flow behavior, Cretaceous Tres Pasos Formation, Chile
Channelized deep-water reservoirs inherently contain sub-seismic scale heterogeneity, resulting in uncertainty when evaluating reservoir connectivity and flow patterns. Stratigraphic architectural features, including stacked channel elements, channel element fill, mass transport deposits (MTDs), and channel base drapes, can have a complex and significant impact on fluid flow pathways. While this detailed stratigraphic architecture can be difficult to capture at the development scale, it can be effectively modeled at the sector scale using high-resolution outcrop data. The characterization of ...
