    Their retardation effect, however, is strongly different, but can to a large extent be eluicdated by considering the trap structure. Traps also pose a safety risk to humans as it is legal to set leg-hold, Conibear and snare traps metres from a dwelling on public, private or Crown lands. The rock will fracture when the pore pressure is greater than both its minimum stress and its tensile strength then reseal when the pressure reduces and the fractures close. Hydrocarbon traps are any combination of physical factors that promote the accumulation and retention of petroleum in one location.

    Water and gas injection[ edit ]. This salt is impermeable and when it crosses a layer of permeable rock, in which hydrocarbons are migrating, it blocks the pathway in much the same manner as a fault trap. Stratigraphic traps are created when the seal or barrier is formed by changes in lithology or rock type which also controls porosity and permeabilityDURING the deposition of the reservoir beds involved. Faulting often breaks an oil field into several separate pools or fault blocks. They formed as a result of tectonic forces to attack the existing rock layer thus yield the deformation of that rock 2. Heriot Watt Institute of Petroleum Engineering.

    They do not allow fluids to migrate across them until their integrity is disrupted, causing them to leak. The three basic forms of structural traps are the anticline trap, the fault trap and the salt dome trap. Frequently the center of the surface anticline forms a topographic low where erosion has cut through otherwise resistant beds, which have been fractured by the folding process. With such information, it is possible to estimate how many "stock tank" barrels of oil are located in the reservoir. Overthrust anticlines are formed by compression and occur along the edges of major uplifts as narrow folded belts. APFA has a short video tutorial here.

Petroleum Traps

Salt has a density of 2. This occurs when the natural gas is in a cap below the oil. For example, they have a cap rock. Before leaving this discussion, it is important to understand that in the early days of petroleum exploration in the U.

These animals are doomed to a prolonged, painful death, as infection increasingly debilitates them, impacting their ability to hunt, feed, and walk.

The oil column is at least ft thick. Conference McCollough, C. The upward movement of the salt plug, or dome, continues as long as there is sufficient source of salt "feeding" the dome OR until the upward movement is halted by a more rigid formation.

Here, the fracture and slippage of rock along a fault line may bring an impermeable stratum in contact with a layer of permeable reservoir rock and thus forms a barrier to petroleum migration. Porosity controls the volume of hydrocarbons present in a given trap while permeability controls the volume of hydrocarbons that can be extracted from the trap.

Answer: The reef complex has now become a reservoir trap blocking further movement of the hydrocarbons causing them to pool at this location. As with other drive mechanisms, water or gas injection can be used to maintain reservoir pressure.

This is a good criterion for locating the fault if there is enough well control. Fold traps refer to areas in which the reservoir rocks have been pushed into the shape of a dome.

Stratigraphic traps are formed as the result of variations in the thickness, texture, porosity, or lithology of the reservoir rock. The greatest ratio of hydrocarbon pools to volume of sediment is found in rock no older than 2.

Structural traps Traps filled with hydrocarbons can be rearranged structurally by diastrophic forces, thus un-trapping the hydrocarbons. Salt domes account only for creating reservoir traps.

Prior to Oxy's entering the area, there had been 61 exploratory wells drilled with meager results, namely two fields with total reserves of about 20 million bbl of light oil and one field with reserves of 90 million bbl of In some cases, there can be an impermeable substance smeared along the fault line such as clay that also acts to prevent migration.

Once this upward salt movement begins, salt from elsewhere in the salt bed moves into the region surrounding the salt plug to replace the salt that is flowing upward to form the salt plug. Both gravity and seismic surveys are extremely useful methods of searching for salt dome features. There are two types of migration when discussing the movement of petroleum, primary and secondary.

This mass of salt has between pushed upward from below through the surrounding rock and sediments into its present position.

The impervious stratum that overlies the reservoir rock is called the roof rock. It may be kept from escaping by an overlying nonporous layer of rock.Structural and stratigraphic traps are well established in geological literature. The fluidic system is new; often, traps of this nature are referred to as “miscellaneous” or “other” or “unconventional” but seem to fit nicely into a distinct system of their own.

In petroleum trap simple system divides them into structural traps and stratigraphic traps. The most common type of structural trap is formed by an anticline, a structure with a concave (as viewed from below) roof caused by the local deformation of the reservoir rock.

The internet trap discussion focuses on five key areas, as the title success, the five cost of living online. The internet trap suggests to put us structural barriers to defend ourselves against these traps.
