Clay Mineral Cements in Sandstones (Special Publication 34 by Richard Worden,Sadoon Morad

By Richard Worden,Sadoon Morad

Clay minerals are some of the most vital teams of minerals that break permeability in sandstones. even if, additionally they react with drilling and finishing touch fluids and set off fines migration in the course of hydrocarbon creation. they're a very complicated family members of minerals which are usually intergrown with one another, include a variety of sturdy ideas and shape by means of numerous procedures lower than a variety temperatures and rock and fluid compositions.

In this quantity, clay minerals in sandstones are reviewed by way of their mineralogy and common incidence, their strong and radiogenic isotope geochemistry, XRD quantification, their results at the petrophysical houses of sandstones and their relationships to series stratigraphy and palaeoclimate. The controls on quite a few clay minerals are addressed and numerous geochemical matters, together with the significance of mass flux, hyperlinks to carbonate mineral diagenesis and associated clay mineral diagenesis in interbedded mudstone-sandstone are explored. a couple of case reports are integrated for kaolin, illite and chlorite cements, and the incidence of smectite in sandstone is reviewed. Experimental cost info for clay cements in sandstones are reviewed and there are model-based case reports that deal with the charges of development of kaolinite and illite.

The readership of this quantity will comprise sedimentologists and petrographers who take care of the prevalence, spatial and temporal distribution styles and significance of clay mineral cements in sandstones, geochemists excited by unraveling the standards that regulate clay mineral cement formation in sandstones and petroleum geoscientists keen on predicting clay mineral distribution in sandstones. The ebook can be of curiosity to geologists curious about palaeoclimate stories basin analysis.

  • Latest geochemical information on clays in sandstones
  • Provides very important info for geologists focused on basin research, sandstone petrology and petroleum geology
