Fault seal property database

A database containing available published and unpublished data on fault seal calibration has been compiled. The database relates the percentage shale in a sequence, which has moved past a point on a geological fault to the ability of the fault to form an effective seal to hydrocarbons. The database provides a basis for the estimation of the sealing capacity of faults in the subsurface in mixed sandstone/shale sequences. Its use within the Infami project has been to constrain the sealing parameters attached to faults in semi migration modelling.
