Standardization analysis and principles of various authors’ terminology while building lithologic and facies map of deltaic genesis formation

Authors: E.A. Potapova (TNNC LLC, RF, Tyumen)

Key words: facies analysis, deltaic system, classification, terminology scale.

The article recites the data on solving problem that relates to necessity to compare lithologic and facies columns and electrometric models in wells done by various authors within one work area in order to build lithological and facies model. The conclusions are made about differences in approaches used to determine zoning. Based on the analysis, the scale of facies zones is proposed that specifies values of certain terms in various classifications.
