  • During the earliest Mississippian, much of east-central US was a deep-water black-shale basin formed due to subsidence accompanying Acadian tectonism; by the middle Mississippian, this basin had been transformed into a very shallow epeiric sea characterized by ooid-rich carbonates. This transformation probably occurred in two parts due to flexural mechanisms accompanying the end of the Acadian orogeny and the beginning of the Ouachita orogeny. In the eastern part of the basin, with the end of active Acadian deformational loading, lithospheric relaxation caused uplift and eastward migration of the Acadian peripheral bulge from near the Cincinnati arch into the Appalachian basin.more » By the middle Meramecian, this uplift and a concomitant infilling of the basin with post-orogenic clastics created an extensive shallow-water platform conducive to ooid deposition well into the Appalachian basin. In western parts of the cratonic black-shale basin, from the western flanks of the Cincinnati arch to the eastern flanks of the Transcontinental arch, any infilling with postorogenic Acadian clastics was minor. However, by the Kinderhook-Osage transition, apparent collision and subduction leading to the Ouachita orogeny had begun, and with the inception of collision, the entire foreland as far north as the Illinois basin was upwarped by the cratonward (north and northeast) migration of the accompany peripheral bulge. As a result, by the early Meramecian, shallow-water conditions favorable for oolitic-carbonate deposition prevailed throughout the area.« less
  • The diagenetic evolution of oomoldic pore rocks from US and Middle East reservoirs were studied to determine their variation. The oomolds in all of the reservoir samples appear to have formed prior to any compaction, and were also subject to early cementation, which preserved the delicate structure of these rocks. The most common oomold-filling mineral is calcite, regardless of whether the remainder of the rock is dolostone or limestone. Anhydrite is commonly the mineral filling oomolds in formations depositionally associated with evaporites. Partial cementation of individual oomolds is rare. However, partial filling of oomoldic wackestones by lime mud was observed.more » The petrophysical characteristics of oomoldic rocks in different stages of diagenetic evolution were analyzed using thin sections, pore casts, porosity and permeability measurements, and saturation. The rocks used in the study included core samples from the Lansing-Kansas City Group, San Andres, Smackover, Arab, and Khuff formations. Selected samples from the Lansing-Kansas City Groups were also measured for formation factor, density, and for dielectric and acoustic properties. The study quantified the relationship of pore type and volume with both formation factor and permeability of oomoldic rocks. The framework mineralogy (calcite or dolomite) and microstructure, and the presence and nature of interparticle pore-filling cements are critical factors in assessing the reservoir potential of an oomoldic reservoir facies. Furthermore, the geologic analysis of the pore system can greatly improve the determination of the Archie m exponent, which provides more reasonable evaluations of the saturation and permeability of these complex rocks.« less
