A combination of depositional and diagenetic factors ( i.e. , grain - size
differences , postdepositional alterations ) therefore must have influenced
porosity preservation in reservoir sandstones . Whole - core porosities ( 4–24

Authigenic kaolinite , illite - smectite , and chlorite influence reservoir properties
by occluding pore spaces and pore throats . Most porosity in reservoir sandstones is primary ; however , secondary porosity is created by dissolution of

Each of the three data sets consists of many sandstone porosity - vitrinite

( 2 ) As a group the oil producing sandstones are coarser than the non -
producing ones . Nearly all of the better reservoir sandstones are fine - grained
whereas the bulk of the Springer sandstones are very fine - grained ( figure 36 ) .
