Most reservoir properties, ranging in scale from megascopic to microscopic, can be ultimately traced to environmental variations within deposi-tional systems. Each depositional environment produces sand bodies which display a certain size and shape, and which exhibit a characteristic range in mineral composition, sedimentary structures, and textures. Following deposition, diagenetic processes affecting reservoir quality of siliciclastic rocks normally proceed along different paths that are directly or indirectly related to environmentally-controlled differences in composition and physical characteristics (Figure 4-1).

The effect of depositional facies on reservoir quality in siliciclastics is, obviously, most pronounced in relatively shallow reservoirs. In such rocks, reservoir...
