A classical Upper Jurassic fault block in the North Sea, the Fulla Structure, has Brent Group sandstones with good reservoir quality and apparently insignificant fault-related reservoir damage. Core data show high-porous sandstones that extend close to the main faults and there is no evidence of catalase, only of soft-sedimentary deformation. Shear bands are relatively thin with high offsets, and have a texture comparable to the wall rock. To investigate the deformation mechanism and products synthetic Brent Group sands are deformed in a triaxial plane strain box with pre-defined effective consolidation in the range of 100–8000 kPa, simulating a burial...
