  Information - TS2.1 Faulting in carbonate rocks: new insights on deformation mechanisms, petrophysics, and fluid flow properties

Event Information
Although carbonate rocks form widespread oil, gas, and water reservoirs their deformation mechanisms are not well understood. The relative importance of the sedimentary fabric, diagenetic history, fluid content, and structural background of the carbonate protoliths in the formation of joints, pressure solution seams, and deformation bands are still object of debate.
In this session we propose to present state-of-the-art research on the processes of fault growth in platform, slope, and basinal carbonates. Our focus will be on the resulting fault architectures in these different types of carbonates. We aim to integrate the results of field-based studies with those of experimental and numerical works on the petrophysical and fluid flow properties of faults in carbonates.
