    Sedimentary characteristics and exploration signifi cance of sub-lacustrine fan of highstand system tract in the fi rst member of Liushagang Formation in the Weixinan Sag
    Hu Desheng, Fan Caiwei, Zhu Hongtao, Liu Sheng, Gong Liyuan
    China Petroleum Exploration. 2020, 25 (5): 23-31.   DOI: 10.3969/j.issn.1672-7703.2020.05.004
    Abstract ( 28 HTML  ( )  
    The sub-lacustrine fan of highstand system tract in the fi rst member of the Liushagang Formation (hereinafter referred to as Liu-1 member) in B sub sag of the Weixinan Sag is an important fi eld for lithologic reservoir exploration. However, the characteristics, classifi cation, distribution, genetic mechanism, and development pattern of sub-lacustrine fan are not well understood, which restricts the exploration process and effectiveness. Based on data from drilling, core, well logging, laboratory analysis and 3D seismic data, the sub-lacustrine fans of highstand system tract in the Liu-1 member in B sub- sag have been systematically described. The results show that: (1) The sub-lacustrine fans of highstand system tracts in the Liu-1 member in B sub-sag can be divided into two major types and four sub-types, which are mass fl ow sub-lacustrine fans in early highstand stage (which can be further divided into incised channel center type and incised channel fl ank type) and debris fl ow sub-lacustrine fans in late highstand stage (which can also be further divided into non-channelized sand-rich type and non-channelized mud-rich type). (2) All kinds of sub-lacustrine fans have different characteristics in lithology and on well logging and seismic data. (3) There are two development models jointly controlled by lake level change, sediment source system and transport routes. The fi rst depositional model is meandering river delta - sedimentary fl exure slope break - mud-rich sub-lacustrine fan with west axial sediment source. The second depositional model is fan delta - fault transition slope break - sand-rich sub-lacustrine fan with northwest sediment source. (4) The sub-lacustrine fan sand bodies of the incised channel center mass fl ow type and the non-channelized sand-rich debris fl ow type, supplied by the northwest fan delta sediments, have shallow-buried depth and good reservoir properties, and form a hydrocarbon accumulation assemblage of self-generating, self-storage and self-sealing with the lacustrine mudstones in the Liu-1 member, which has great exploration potential.

    Geological characteristics of continental shale gas reservoir in the Jurassic Da’anzhai member in the northeastern Sichuan Basin
    Zhou Dehua, Sun Chuanxiang, Liu Zhongbao, Nie Haikuan
    China Petroleum Exploration. 2020, 25 (5): 32-42.   DOI: 10.3969/j.issn.1672-7703.2020.05.005
    Abstract ( 28 HTML  ( )  
    In order to investigate the geological characteristics and exploration and development potential of continental shale gas reservoir, the Da’anzhai member of the Jurassic Ziliujing Formation in the Yuanba and Fuling areas in the northeastern Sichuan Basin is taken as an example. By means of core observation, thin section identifi cation, X-ray diffraction, organic carbon content analysis, Scanning Electron Microscope, high-pressure mercury injection and nitrogen adsorption, the geological characteristics of continental shale gas reservoir have been studied, such as sedimentary environment and lithology, organic geochemical characteristics, reservoir space and gas-bearing property, mineral composition and fl uid properties. The results show that organic-rich shales in shallow to semi-deep lacustrine facies are developed in the Da’anzhai member. The lithology is mainly shale intercalated with banded or laminated sandstones and shell limestones. The organic matter type is Type Ⅱ2 or type Ⅲ . TOC is 0.33%-3.78%. Ro is 1.11%-1.82%, indicating mature to high mature stage. The reservoir space in the shale is mainly mineral pores. The porosity ranges from 1.5% to 6.7%, with micro-pores less than 2nm and medium pores of 2-50nm as the most prevalent. The gas-bearing property is good (with average gas content of 1.49 m3/t). The shale has good fracability and the average content of brittle minerals is 51%. A total of 12 wells have obtained high-production oil and gas fl ows, showing good exploration and development potential. Based on the comparative study on the differences between the characteristics of continental shale and marine shale, it has been further clarifi ed that the favorable sedimentary facies is an important basis for the enrichment and high- production of continental shale gas in the Da’anzhai member in the northeastern Sichuan Basin. Also, hydrocarbon accumulation is controlled by rock association and lithologic composition, organic carbon content, physical properties, fl uid pressure and development degree of micro fractures. These understandings provide reference for the selection of the most favorable exploration and development target formation of Jurassic continental shale gas in the Sichuan Basin.

    Abstract ( 28 HTML  ( )  
    Up to now, geophysical logging is still the most important technical means to identify the physical properties of subsurface strata and whether they are hydrocarbon-bearing. Using the technology of big data and artifi cial intelligence, based on Dream Cloud intelligent data analysis platform, this paper develops the intelligent well logging interpretation. On the basis of data collection and splicing, features of log data are extracted. Combined with expert knowledges and experiences, models are established, machine learning and model training are carried out, and model testing and iteration are completed. The intelligent logging interpretation technology is verifi ed by sandstone and mudstone identification (cut-off value is 0.4 based on 60 wells) and oil and water layer identification (cut-off value is 0.5 based on 47 wells). The interpretation results show that, it takes about 2-4 hours to distinguish sandstone and mudstone. The accuracy rate of mudstone and sandstone identifi cation is 94% and 90% respectively, and the comprehensive accuracy rate is 92%. And It takes about 4-6 hours to distinguish oil layer and water layer. The accuracy rate of oil layer and water layer identifi cation is 93% and 70% respectively, and the comprehensive accuracy rate is 86%. This technology can effectively improve the automation degree and result coincidence rate of multi-well logging interpretation. The application of big data analysis technology brings new motive force and good prospects for the development of traditional well logging interpretation technology.
