Fault Patterns Around Salt Domes

Published:

Abstract

The complex faulting above and around salt stocks creates many small reservoirs, the exploitation of which requires good well control and good understanding of the principles of faulting around domes. The two most important factors that can influence fault patterns near surface are the plan shape of the salt stock and the type of regional strain. The influence of both these factors has been investigated in plan view by experimental and mathematical modeling of the effects of gentle doming.
