Hydrocarbon Accumulation Dominant Factors and Modes of Minghuazhen Formation in Chengdao Area
Chengdao area is a multiple hydrocarbon accumulation belt with the typical tectonic background, and its main target stratum is Neogene. However, the exploration and recognition level of Minghuazhen Formation is still at the primary stage. Based on the comprehensive analysis of seismic, well-logging, logging and geochemical data, and combined with its structural characteristics, intensity of fault activity and reservoir-caprock assemblage, this paper systematically analyzed the dominant factors of hydrocarbon accumulation in Minghuazhen Formation, and clarified that the tectonic setting controlled where the hydrocarbon enriched, intensity of fault activity influenced how much of hydrocarbon enriched and the reservoir-seal assemblage dominated hydrocarbon accumulation strata. Then two types of hydrocarbon accumulation models, that is, main fault-sand body and main fault-secondary fault–sand body were established.
