The occurrence of sand injectites is well documented in many hydrocarbon-bearing, deep-water clastic reservoirs. In some fields, injectite sand bodies, and depositional sand bodies that have been modified by liquefaction and fluidization, hold major reserves. These fields were not drilled as sand injectite prospects, but the significance of the injectites became apparent during field appraisal and/or development. However, the first exploration well that deliberately targeted a sand injectite was drilled as recently as 2004 (4). Thus, sand injectites (intrusive traps sensu Hurst et al., 2005) constitute a virtually unexplored trapping style.
