A Method of Quantitative Evaluation of Diagenetic Reservoir Facies of Tight Gas Reservoirs With Logging Multi-Parameters: A Case Study in Sulige Area, Northern Ordos Basin, China

Cheng JING, Chunsheng PU, Ziqi SONG


Reservoir and flow characteristics of low, ultra-low permeability tight sandstone reservoir were largely controlled by diagenesis in reservoir assessment. In previous studies, diagenesis were researched only by using core analysis data, and it was difficult that diagenetic reservoir facies of the interval and the well without core analysis data were evaluated. Therefore, it was easy and quick that diagenetic reservoir facies were characterized with logging response characteristics which were extracted effectively. Taking tight gas reservoirs for example in Sulige area, northern Ordos Basin, China, logging response characteristics of different classification were analyzed by multiple samples with core analysis data, and the quantitative evaluation index of diagenetic reservoir facies based on logging multi-parameter was set up. A method of quantitative evaluation of diagenetic reservoir facies of tight gas reservoirs with logging multi-parameters was formed in the method of integration of analysis technology of Grey theory, and the accuracy and availability of the method were evaluated. The results shown that non-digitalized problems of diagenetic reservoir facies evaluation was solved by the digitalization method of logging multi-parameters, and the rate of accuracy, of returned classification using methods of mutual test, reached to 91.2%. The results provided a new and effective evaluation approach of low, ultra-low permeability tight sandstone reservoir.
