This paper presents the results of a study that assesses a new non-taxonomic biostratigraphical technique as a tool for refining reservoir correlations. In this example from the Paleocene Maureen Formation, Fleming Field, UKCS, morphostratigraphy provides greater biostratigraphical resolution than a more conventional biozonation or bioevent approach and significantly improves reservoir correlation. As a result, a different reservoir sand connectivity model is proposed. This model explains production anomalies experienced in the field. The study also clearly demonstrates the applicability of morphostratigraphy to refine correlations within deep marine turbidite settings.
