We wish to establish a model for the relationship between porosity, texture, and acoustic velocity of chalk.
Chalk from the Ontong Java Plateau (OJP)has a wide range of porosities as a consequence of the progressive burial diagenesis of chalk. P-wave velocity data and textural data obtained by electron microscopy for OJP material form the basis for a model, which will be applied to chalk from North Sea reservoirs.
