Article
Sedimentary rocks tend to progressively lose porosity with depth due to mechanical and chemical compaction. In carbonates, this trend is hard to predict since many factors can create porosity in the burial setting. The Oligocene-Miocene Perla Limestone, a giant gas reservoir located in the Gulf of Venezuela Basin, shows a complex porosity system ma...
Article
The Cenomanian Buda Limestone is a distinctive rock formation widely distributed in Texas and its neighboring regions. The extensive character and regional significance of this unit make the Buda Limestone a key stratigraphic datum in the Texas Gulf Coast Basin. Detailed sedimentologic and stratigraphic studies of this formation were mostly focused...
Article
The Cenomanian Buda Limestone is a widespread coccolith-rich carbonate unit deposited on the Comanche Shelf of the Texas Gulf Coast Basin. This formation is a key stratigraphic marker, and its hydrocarbon resources have been exploited since the 1920s. Despite its stratigraphic and economic importance, the depositional environments, and controls on...
Article
The Miocene Pirabas Formation is of strategic importance for the hydrocarbon industry since it represents the onshore portion of larger offshore basins of Northern Brazil, including the Fóz de Amazonas, the Pará-Maranhão, Barreirinhas, Ceará, and the Potiguar basins of the equatorial margin of South America. The Pirabas Formation from the Aricuru o...
Conference Paper
The correlation of living algae with their depositional environments is complex since many factors control and limit distribution of particular species in space (Wray, 1977). Coralline-red algae are considered a valuable tool for paleoenvironmental interpretation because of their sensitivity to ecological and climate factors (McCoy and Kamenos, 201...

Los yacimientos de gas natural están compuestos principalmente por mezclas de hidrocarburos esencialmente puros como metano (CH4), etano (C2H6), propano (C3H8), etc., y por cantidades variables de gases no hidrocarburos como el dióxido de carbono (CO2), nitrógeno (N2), sulfuro de hidrogeno (H2S), entre otros, cuya procedencia y entorno geológico pu...
Conference Paper
El objetivo de este trabajo es presentar la metodología de caracterización del yacimiento carbonatico de gas no asociado MIO Perla-1 del campo Perla. El campo Perla, se encuentra enmarcado en el área Cardón IV del Proyecto Rafael Urdaneta en aguas territoriales y superficiales del Golfo de Venezuela, República Bolivariana de Venezuela y ubicado a u...
Conference Paper
Se llevó a cabo una caracterización geoquímica de los sulfuros pertenecientes a la Mina Santa Isabel, estado Guarico, Venezuela, con el fin de contribuir al establecimiento de un modelo genético del yacimiento. En este sentido se determinaron las concentraciones de los principales elementos mayoritarios (Zn, Fe, Pb, Cu, Ba y Si) y trazas (Ag, Cd, C...
