This chapter summarizes various “hybrid-type” deepwater reservoirs. Reservoirs are considered to be hybrids if they do not easily fit into the classification of channel fills, thin beds in levees, sheets, and mass-transport deposits (Chapter 6 through Chapter 9, respectively). Hybrid reservoirs were influenced by gravity flows during one part of their formation and were deformed or resedimented after primary deposition.

Three kinds of hybrid reservoirs are briefly reviewed. In the first group, the reservoirs were modified later due to overpressuring and deformation (remobilized sands or injectites). A second group of hybrid reservoirs comprises chalks that experienced resedimentation after their original pelagic deposition (e.g., southern North Sea chalks). A third group of hybrid reservoirs consists of carbonate debris aprons.
