Papers submitted to the BULLETIN must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. The geologist concerned with pressure problems must be aware of (1) the many variables involved in subsurface pressures, (2) the low number and ambiguity of pressure measurements, (3) the need to establish what constitutes "normal" pressure to determine abnormal pressure, and (4) the possibility of uniqueness in any field situation.

Chapter 4 CAUSES OF ABNORMAL SUBSURFACE PRESSURE A number of causes have been proposed for the generation of abnormal pressures: (1)Compaction (2) Aquathermal effect (3) Montmorillonite dehydration (4) Artesian condition (5)Hydrocarbon accumulation (6) Osmosis (7)Fossil pressure (8) Cementation (9)Tectonics (10) Generation of hydrocarbons (especially gas).

Abnormal pressures, pressures above or below hydrostatic pressures, occur on all continents in a wide range of geological conditions. According to a survey of published literature on abnormal pressures, compaction disequilibrium and hydrocarbon generation are the two most commonly cited causes of abnormally high pressure in petroleum provinces.

Abnormal pressures occur where the pore pressures are significantly greater than normal (overpressure) or less than normal (underpressure). Overpressured sediments are found in the subsurface of both young basins from about to km downwards, and in.

On a normalized scale where hydrostatic pressure equals 0 and lithostatic pressure equals 1, es-timates of fluid pressures were found to range from to over a depth range of 4–7 km.

Get this from a library. Abnormal subsurface pressure; a study group report, [Houston Geological Society. Abnormal Pressure Study Group.]. Formation pore pressure in subsurface has been classified into normal pressure (equal to hydrostatic pressure), underpressure (less than hydrostatic pressure), and overpressure.

Overpressure state in definition is an abnormal subsurface pressure in the formation pore pressure that is significantly higher than the hydrostatic pressure (e.g. The potential storage capacity and fluid flow pathways through the Permian White Rim Sandstone, Utah, is evaluated in order to reduce atmospheric CO 2 levels.

This sandstone would not make a high-quality storage reservoir despite initial, promising outcrop results.

Braunstein, Jules (Ed.) and AAPG. The accurate prediction and detection of abnormal pressure are prerequisites for wells to be drilled safely such that the pressure exerted by the formation fluids.

In Tertiary sediments of the Malay Basin, a major young sedimentary basin which lies offshore the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia (Figure 1) abnormal pressure has been encountered. Abnormal pressure can cause drilling difficulties, but it can also provide highly useful data for hydrocarbon exploration, reserves estimation, and reservoir development.

DATALOG: ABNORMAL FORMATION PRESSURE ANALYSIS, Versionissued February DATALOG: ABNORMAL FORMATION PRESSURE ANALYSIS, Versionissued February 9 Pressure analysis, in any given region, therefore requires knowledge of the normal fluid density and the resulting fluid pressure.

Detection and quantitative evaluation of overpressured subsurface formations are critical to exploration, drilling, and production operations involving hydrocarbon and geothermal resources.

Hence, an interdisciplinary technical team approach is required to optimize the safety, engineering, and financial aspects of operating in such hostile sub-surface environments (Fertl, ). isolated pressure compartments, whereas most abnormally pressured compartments are found in groups or megacom-partment complexes.

"This book was written for students, new professionals in oil companies, and for anyone with an interest in reservoir geology. It explains the background to production geology in the context of oil field subsurface operations. It also gives practical guidelines as to how a production geologist can analyze the reservoir geology and fluid flow characteristics of an oil field with the aim of 4/5(1).

Definition. Abnormal hydrostatic pressure is a departure from normal fluid pressure that is caused by geologic factors. The term “geopressure” was introduced originally by Shell Oil Company to refer to overpressured intervals in the U.S.

Gulf Coast. “Geopressure” is gradually being replaced by the more descriptive terms “overpressure” and “underpressure.”. Causes of Abnormal Subsurface Pressure Pore pressures can be either normal or abnormal or subnormal. Normal pore pressure will be the hydrostatic pressure due to the average density and vertical depth of the column of fluids above a particular point in the geological section that is, to the water table or sea level.

Seismic Amplitude is an invaluable day-to-day tool for graduate students and industry professionals in geology, geophysics, petrophysics, reservoir engineering, and all subsurface disciplines making regular use of seismic data.

Reservoir pore fluid pressure that is not similar to normal saltwater gradient pressure. The term is usually associated with higher than normal pressure, increased complexity for the well designer and an increased risk of well control re gradients in excess of around 10 pounds per gallon equivalent fluid density ( psi/foot of depth) are considered abnormal.

So-called abnormal pressures, subsurface fluid pressures significantly higher or lower than hydrostatic, have excited speculation about their origin since subsurface exploration first encountered them.

Two distinct conceptual models for abnormal pressures have gained currency among earth scientists. The static model sees abnormal pressures generally as relict features preserved by a virtual.

When Fertl's first book, Abnormal Formation Pressures, was published by Elsevier inthe topic was relatively new in book the years that followed, his book became the standard work for petroleum engineers and drillers.

The list of major petroleum provinces with abnormally high pore pressures has grown steadily over the years, and with it has grown our knowledge and experience.

The exchange and migration of basin materials that are carried by pore fluids are the essence of diagenesis, which can alter physical properties of clastic rocks as well as control formation and distribution of favorable reservoirs of petroliferous basins.

Diagenetic products and pore fluids, resulting from migration and exchange of basin materials, can be used to deduce those processes. "Petroleum systems analysis has come a long way from pure geochemical evaluation to integration of all petroleum elements, including source rock characteristics, hydrocarbon generation, expulsion and migration, traps, seals, and alterations of the hydrocarbon fluids and columns.

In one area of Russia, local formation pressure in the range of to psi at feet were reported. This equates to a formation pressure gradient of to psi/ft. In the North Sea abnormal pressures occur with widely varying magnitudes in many geological formations.
