Clay content is a first-order control on the mechanical and fluid-flow properties of fault rocks. The effects of deformation and also diagenesis are modified by the presence of clay in impure sandstones, although our understanding of the results of such changes is not well constrained. Because a lack of data for fault rocks in impure sandstones limits our ability to assess fault seal risk, a study was undertaken to investigate the effects of physical and diagenetic processes on these parameters in the Otway Basin on the southern margin of Australia. Fault rocks formed in impure reservoir sandstones from the...
