A detailed study of the Pennsylvanian Indian Basin Field of New Mexico, USA is used to develop a conceptual model that predicts reservoir porosity in clean down-depositional-dip marine carbonate, where repeated fracturing allows for hydrothermal fluid flow. Strata updip probably experienced repeated events of subaerial exposure, resulting in mineralogical stabilization and extensive calcite cementation that prevented extensive hydrothermal alteration. Clean, carbonate sediment deposited downdip was more prone to alteration by hydrothermal fluids. In the reservoir, cement stratigraphy shows regionally persistent zones closely associated with fracturing. Fluid inclusion data show high temperatures and repeated rises and falls, indicating tectonic valving...
