Cementation, in geology, hardening and welding of clastic sediments those formed from preexisting rock fragments by the precipitation of mineral matter in the pore spaces. It is the last stage in the formation of a sedimentary rock. The cement forms an integral and important part of the rock,
2. Factors affecting cementation factor Archie shape factor, m Because of the dependence of m on various properties, it has been given different names, including for instance, cementation factor, shape factor, conductivity factor, resistivity factor, porosity exponent, and cementation exponent.
Cementation factor is one of the most important petrophysical reservoir rock properties. In quantitative interpretation of well log data it is widely used to estimate porosity and water saturation. Many researchers have studied the effect of the cementation factor in porous media, which is
Given the above, a new statistical model is proposed to relate the porosity exponent to the permeability of the studied sandstone samples in the Gulf of Suez, Egypt. The effect of confining pressure on the studied porosity exponent m and the lithology factor a is significant when porosity is less than or equal to 10.
cementation factor prediction model, which is relevant to porosity and logarithmic mean of NMR T2 2. 3 introduces a numerical method for cementation exponent determination only for clean sandstones. 4 studied the cementation factor in the Asmari limestone and stated that it is impossible to introduce a constant m value and separate
THE EFFECT OF CEMENTATION ON THE SEISMIC PROPERTIES OF SANDSTONE Xavier Du Bernard, Manika Prasad, Michael Reinstaedtler 1. INTRODUCTION Composition and cementation are two major parameters that control the elastic properties of granular media. The different types of cement found in sandstones depend on their depositional and burial environments.
Silica cement, also called quartz cement, creates the strongest and most durable type of sandstone used for building. The cement is a result of the quartz grains overgrowing and expanding the crystallized forms until it runs into another quartz crystal. This type of sandstone typically forms in environments that have highenergy currents, such

During cementation, the size of the pore spaces between the porefilling crystals decreases until it approaches the size of the pore throats. Throats become more tabular or sheetlike. Sandstone porosity may be quite low lt5 and still have some permeability lt10 md where cemented with quartz. See also Connectivity and pore throat size.

Sandstone has two different kinds of material in it besides the sediment particles matrix and cement. Matrix is the finegrained stuff silt and clay size that was in the sediment along with the sand whereas cement is the mineral matter, introduced later, that binds the sediment into rock.
Fundamentals of Fluid Flow in Porous Media Chapter 2 Formation Resistivity Factor Porous media consist of mineral, rock fragments and void space. The solids with exception of certain clay minerals such as shaly sands where clay shales produce electrical conductivity are nonconductive. Generally the electrical property of a rock depends on void space geometry
where is porosity and m is a constant commonly called the cementation factor related to the pore geometry. The constant, m, was the slope obtained from a plot of F R vs. porosity on loglog paper. For consolidated, shalefree sandstones, the value of m ranged from 1.8 to 2.
formation factor depends upon porosity in the form of an inverse power law F m 2 with an exponent m. He called the exponent the cementation exponent factor or index because he believed it to be related to the degree of cementation of the rock fabric. This constitutes the first
The tortuosity factor in the sandstone and carbonate samples is greater than the normal value in the literature a 1, and this is due to the heterogeneity of the core samples. The cementation exponent for both sandstone and carbonate is different from the literature, but still within the normal value of two.
In petrophysics, Archie39s law relates the insitu electrical conductivity of a sedimentary rock to its porosity and brine saturation Here, denotes the porosity, the electrical conductivity of the fluid saturated rock, represents the electrical conductivity of the brine, is the brine saturation, is the cementation exponent of the rock usually in the range 1.82.0 for sandstones, is the
The equation for M is M 1.40 6.57 PHIe where PHIe is a decimal fraction. permeability. regime 0.1 1.0 md The slope and intercept of the variable M plots will of course vary from one reservoir to another, and vary with the permeability regime, which is an indicator of the connectedness of the moldic porosity.
The cementation factor, m, indicates reduction in the number and size of pore openings or reduction in the closedoff deadend. channels. It has been widely used in hydrocarbon and groundwater exploration, and in porousmedia engineering studies 2,420.. The cementation factor exhibits wide variations from sample to sample, formation to formation, interval to interval in the same medium, and
Cementation involves ions carried in groundwater chemically precipitating to form new crystalline material between sedimentary grains. The new porefilling minerals forms 34bridges34 between original sediment grains, thereby binding them together. In this way sand becomes 34sandstone34, and gravel becomes 34conglomerate34 or 34breccia34. Cementation occurs as part of the diagenesis or lithification of
