The Middle Ordovician St. Peter Sandstone in the Michigan Basin is a target for hydrocarbon exploration/production, and carbon sequestration and geologic storage. The St. Peter Sandstone is predominantly a marine sandstone with four dominant lithologic facies. The uppermost facies contains zones of porosity and good reservoir quality. Because of the mostly uniform, quartzose detrital grain composition, diagenesis played a dominant role in reservoir quality development. The distribution of diagenetic alteration is believed to result from variations in depositional setting and related geologic processes, including variations in sediment accumulation rate. Early marine carbonate cements preserved precompaction intergranular space available for...
