This segment of the notes presents an overview of diagenetic processes of porosity and permeability destruction and enhancement. In the limited space available here, it is impossible to cover in any detail the vast literature on this subject. Thus, only the volumetrically important mechanisms of reservoir quality modification will be discussed, along with highlights of some recent studies of particular interest.

Major advances have been made in the understanding of clastic diagenesis in the last fifteen years. Many of these advances can be attributed directly to the intense efforts of oil industry research, exploration, and production personnel, as well...
