Abstract

ABSTRACT Recent carbonate platforms may provide useful analogues to fossil platforms and reefs and could allow the generation of quantitative tools for the prediction of facies distribution, reservoir volumes and quality. Data from these modern analogues would greatly enhance our ability to construct more reliable and calibrated reservoir models for fossil carbonate fields, such as the Miocene carbonate platforms of Central Luconia Province, Sarawak. In this study, carbonate facies maps and quantitative reservoir data can be generated by using remote sensing techniques. Satellite imagery over the carbonate platforms East of Sabah has been acquired and processed for generating facies maps. In order to produce a reliable facies map, the composition and grain size distribution of the sediments that make up individual facies must be known in order to determine the classes that have been identified on the initial facies maps. Samples collected from Gaya and Selekan platforms are being analysed and their grain size analysis result are illustrated. Keywords Carbonates, facies, platform, remote sensing, mapping,
