Diagenesis Processes in Yamama Formation in Tuba Oil Field, Southern Iraq
Aqeel Fattah Hasan, Dr. Mohammad Sattam
Yamama Formation (Late Berriasian–Valangenian) forms the most important Lower Cretaceous carbonate reservoir in the south of Iraq. The petrographic study by thin-section examination indicates that the Yamama Formation in Tuba Oil Field had been affected by nine diagenetic processes. These processes ruled the porosity system in this formation, these processes are; cementation, micritization, pyritization, silicification, dissolution, mechanical compaction, chemical compaction (stylolization), dolomitization, and neomorphisim. The deposition of Yamama Formation was occurred during a regressive period within inner ramp, mid ramp, and outer ramp environments.
