  • Thermal structure and source rock maturity of the North Peruvian forearc system: Insights from a subduction-sedimentation integrated petroleum system modeling
    Marine and Petroleum Geology, 2020
    Co-Authors: Adriana Lemgruber-traby, Nicolas Espurt, Christine Souque, Pierre Henry, Ysabel Calderon, Patrice Baby, Stéphane Brusset

    Abstract:

    Basin modeling is commonly used for the hydrocarbon potential evaluation of underexplored areas, taking into account the full basin history to assess its thermicity and fluid distributions. In the case of forearc basins, however, the influence of the subduction on the internal thermal structure is difficult to predict. The existing subduction thermal models usually focus on the present day lithosphere and do not consider the sediment infill history, while industrial modeling tools handle the thermal evolution of sedimentary basins but not the subduction process. In this paper, we propose a solution model in which the cooling engendered by the subduction is represented by the Advective Term of the heat conservation energy equation throughout the sedimentation. This study focuses on the Talara-Tumbes-Lancones petroleum province, part of the North Peruvian forearc system. Despite the long Term exploration of the Talara Basin, the origin of its massive oil fields still remains questioned. The new subductionsedimentation integrated petroleum system modeling presented here, calibrated by numerous structural and thermometric data, allows to better constrain the thermal structure and source rock maturity history of this forearc system. We show that the exposure of the sedimentary basin to the subducting cold lithosphere, the sedimentation rate and erosion are important factors impacting the maturity of the source rocks. Consequently, even in the same subduction setting, each depocenter of the North Peruvian forearc system presents a different thermal history and maturity timing, and each basin presents an independent petroleum system.

  • One-dimensional simulation of solute transfer in saturated-unsaturated porous media using the discontinuous finite elements method.
    Journal of contaminant hydrology, 2001
    Co-Authors: E B Diaw, F Lehmann, P Ackerer

    Abstract:

    A one-dimensional transport model for simulating water flow and solute transport in homogeneous-heterogeneous, saturated-unsaturated porous media is presented. The model is composed of a combination of accurate numerical algorithms for solving the nonlinear Richard’s and advection-dispersion equations (ADE). The mixed form of Richard’s equation is solved using a standard finite element method (FEM) with primary variable switching. The transport equation is solved using operator splitting, with the discontinuous finite element method (DFE) for discretization of the Advective Term. A slope limiting procedure for DFE avoids numerical instabilities but creates very limited numerical dispersion for high Peclet numbers. An implicit finite differences scheme (FD) is used for the dispersive Term. The unsaturated flow and transport model (Wamos-T) is applied to a variety of rigorous problems including transient flow, heterogeneous medium and abrupt variations of velocity in magnitude and direction due to time-varying boundary conditions. It produces accurate and mass-conservative solutions for a very large range of grid Peclet numbers. The Wamos-T model is a good and robust alternative for the simulation of mass transport in unsaturated domain.
