Paper presented at the SPE International Heavy Oil Conference and Exhibition, December 10–12, 2018
Paper Number: SPE-193714-MS
..., particularly in the more proximal southern part of the field, it is more likely that the reduced energy that led to the finer grained "shale" intervals has more to do with rising sea level. In the more northern (basin ward) wells in particular, that gave rise to increasing salinity, as shown by the abundant...

... Abstract Clay minerals are commonly observed in the Neogene succession of North Kuwait, both in the two viscous oil rich sandstone reservoirs (S1, S2) and intervening shale layers. SEM and XRD analysis of the core samples explain that Smectite is the dominant and Palygorskite, Illite and...

... reservoir is clean to slightly argillaceous and / or slightly cemented sandstone. Subordinate reservoir lithologies include sandy shale, dolomite and gypsum. The baffles and the Sealing and Middle shales are a mix of argillaceous cemented sandstone, siltstone, sandy shale and claystone. (Benham, P.H., 2018...

.... The soft, friable nature of the sediment has resulting in poor recovery of core and plug samples. Through time, with enhanced technology, core plugging and preservation techniques we reach 80-90% core recovery in sands and higher in shales and cemented sandstone (Coring Practices SPE-193738-MS).
