In the BM-C-33 area, divided into the Raia Manta and Raia Pintada development areas, reservoirs are arranged into three structural highs: Gávea, Seat, and Pão de Açúcar. These reservoirs consist of pre-salt limestones deposited on volcanic sequences and underwent complex diagenetic evolution. Successive post-depositional processes, including silicification, affected original mineral assemblage, modified pore textures, and caused intense fracturing. Based on borehole image logs (BHI), wireline data from four wells, and 2D and 3D seismic data, this study details natural fracture acoustic and resistivity properties. It also discusses the relationship of faults, fractures, and vugs with diagenetic and tectonic processes. The authors used the data to divide the pre-salt section (Cabiúnas and Macabu formations) into three informal stratigraphic units. The analysis of interpreted fractures within these units suggests that major fracturing occurred due to regional tectonic stress, with local aspects like structural positioning interfering. The results of the fracture analysis imply a direct relationship between fracturing and silicification. Additionally, fracture density, vug volume distribution, and the presence of dissolution features like enlarged fractures limited to specific units imply stratigraphic control on fluid percolation. Finally, the study examines structural particularities in BM-C-33 area that potentially impacted intensity and extension of diagenetic alterations.
