Carbonate and Mudrock Thin-Section Description

Carbonate Microfacies Analysis

We can either come by your office and describe prepared thin-sections there, or receive your samples by mail, or in extreme cases we can look at high-resolution digitized thin-sections. Depending on specific company goals we can use these data to construct sequence stratigraphic models, depositional models, or characterize your reservoir in terms of porosity types. The finished product you will receive can be a well-illustrated report or a stratigraphic column with respective environments of deposition. Reports can include:

  • Environments of Deposition
  • Sequence Stratigraphy
  • Pore Types
  • Microfractures
  • Benthic Foraminiferal biostratigraphy
  • Microfacies
  • Diagenesis
