...implications for oil and gas exploration and development

Evidence of sand fluidization and injection as significant shallow crustal processes is increasingly common in outcrop and subsurface studies. Regionally-developed giant sand injection complexes develop in areas of 100’s to 1000’s km2 and locally reservoir commercial volumes of hydrocarbons, act as fluid migration routes, compromise seals and record major periods of focused fluid flow.

The non-stratiform character of sandstone intrusions requires original solutions for the successful quantitative modelling, drilling and completion of wells and accentuates the need for a better understanding of these often enigmatic features. Sand injection and fluidization occurs on many scales both within giant complexes and as small, discrete features.

Presentations

This conference includes presentations on the characterization and interpretation of sandstone intrusions and associated facies, from grain to basin scale. Presentations on process and reservoir modelling and other practical applications are also given as we consolidate knowledge from improved subsurface imaging, exploration and development drilling and outcrop-based research and identify areas for future investigation.
