This study performs an integrated method using thin section and well log data to determine rock fabrics and their relationship with the rock pore system in Miocene carbonate reservoirs of well RR02, southern Song Hong basin, Vietnam. By thin section analysis, mineral components and pore types of carbonate rocks were determined, creating a basis for carbonate classification and grouping samples into different petrophysical classes. Zoning, identification of dominant changing trend of the petrographic composition and porosity estimation were then conducted based on the combination of different standard log curves, including gamma ray (GR), photoelectric factor (PEF), neutron porosity (NPHI), density (RHOB) and sonic (DT). Four types of rock fabrics were diagnosed along a nearly 90m-thick carbonate reservoir, namely, grainstone, grain-dominated packstone, wackstone and boundstone. Two main pore types were found corresponding to each identified carbonate fabric, including interparticle and vuggy pores estimated by well log interpretation in the range of 5.9% to 10% and 2.9% to 21.5%, respectively. In well RR02, carbonate reservoir was mostly formed by limestone and could be divided into 2 zones with the lower affected by dolomitisation proved by the results of petrographic analysis, log curve characteristics and well log interpretation.
Key words: Carbonate reservoir, petrographic analysis, well log interpretation, porosity, dolomite.
