Pyrenees Hold Clues to Fractured Carbonate Reservoir

Faults and fractures are often an important factor in determining hydrocarbon storage capacity and productivity in reservoirs such as tight carbonates, quartzites and basements. The use of reservoir analogues such as those found in Catalonia in north-east Spain can be key to the interpretation of fractured carbonates reservoirs in the Middle East and elsewhere.
