Predicting reservoir quality in carbonate rocks can be difficult because of the complexity of their pore systems. Applying a combination of concepts of depositional environment, diagenesis, and sequence stratigraphy increases the chances of predicting the quality of reservoir needed for a successful play. Sequence stratigraphic models are especially useful for modeling pore-space evolution and enhance prediction of the location and quality of potential carbonate reservoir rocks.
