Fluvial channel sandstones commonly form hydrocarbon reservoirs in oil-and gas-bearing basins. Where such sands were the product of deposition in broad, extensive channel systems, their lateral extent is often greater than the area of the producing oil or gas field. In such situations, lateral pinchout of reservoir sandstone bodies is unlikely to reduce the gross reservoir volume of the field. Where fluvial sands were deposited in more laterally restricted, perhaps meandering channel belts, however, lateral pinchouts are common. In the case of laterally restricted fluvial reservoirs, the spacing and distribution of producing wells becomes critical, particularly where numbers of...
