Salt System Evolution and Controls on the Development of Stratigraphic Sequences

Manuel Paz, Colorado School of Mines, Department of Geology and Geological Engineering, Golden, CO, [email protected]


The distribution of reservoirs sands in salt controlled settings is complex, and intimately associated with the structural evolution of the salt system. This project seeks to establish the controls that salt system evolution exert on the depositional sequences. This is a critical part of the petroleum system. By establishing the history of salt evolution through structural restorations, this project seeks to constrain the complex bathymetry that controlled sand distribution over time.
