studied the influence of the matrix and its secondary pores on the microscopic pore throat structures of tight sandstone. The research results are conducive to deepening the main controlling factors of deepwater tight sandstone reservoirs and the law of hydrocarbon accumulation.

Why is it important?

Matrix of clastic rocks is usually considered as an unfavorable factor for the storage-percolation capacity of reservoir, while its study is at a relatively low level. However, for deep-water tight sandstone, the influence and contribution of the matrix to the micro-pore throat structure cannot be ignored, which is of great significance for the exploration and development of tight oil.


Through the publication of this article, I hope that my research results can give some inspiration to petroleum geologists and can deepen the study of the main controlling factors of deep water tight reservoirs.
