The Permian Rotliegend clastic reservoirs form the main gas-bearing intervals in the Netherlands, Northwest Germany, and the Southern North Sea. We review and summarise the results of more than thirty years of diagenesis and reservoir-quality studies in Rotliegend sandstones of the Netherlands and adjacent areas.

The Rotliegend sediments were deposited in an alluvial–wadi–aeolian dune–sandflat–playa lake depositional setting, marked by an arid to semiarid climate, in which drier and wetter climatic cyclicity drove sedimentary processes. Present depths of Rotliegend reservoirs in the range of 2 to ca. 4.5 km, are often referred to as maximum burial depths. Rotliegend clastics were...
