Expulsion of hydrocarbons from source rocks and the sealing capacity of shales in relation to the newly discovered formation of 3D silica networks during illitisation is studied in the project. The project integrates sedimentology, diagenesis, rock physics, structural geology and seismic properties to better understand the behaviour of fine grained sedimentary rocks.
Barents Sea Rock Properties (BarRock) combines rock physics, seismics, petrophysics, geomechanics, sedimentology and diagenesis to describe compaction and deformation processes in sedimentary basins. The project is focused on the burial, diagenesis and rock mechanical properties of sandstones and shales in the uplifted Barents Sea area.
