Tengiz Field is a steep-sided, isolated carbonate platform in the Precaspian Basin, Kazakhstan, with hydrocarbon production from Carboniferous platform and slope facies. Systematic differences in reservoir pressure decline during production indicate that this reservoir consists of three subcompartments or material balance regions: (1) a central “platform reservoir” made up of cyclic platform-top facies that acts like a single, stratified, multistory reservoir; (2) a “wedge reservoir” formed by a prograding margin containing upper slope microbial facies; and (3) an “apron reservoir” containing allochthonous facies deposited in deep water around the base of the buildup. The facies in the apron reservoir...
