Diagenesis of Cudi group formations from Dinçer-1 and south Dinçer 1 wells, se Anatolia Turkey

Kahraman Özkan, Ayşegül
Dinçer-1 (1968) and South Dinçer-1 (1980) exploration wells are located at Şırnak Province of Southeast (SE) Anatolia. South Fields of SE Anatolia have received a significant attention after the completion of subjected wells and numerous studies have been implemented regarding this area. Many theories about the geological generation of these fields were put forward by people who studied this region.Both wells have penetrated the Arabian Plate autochthonous units. The Cudi Group, of this sequence, mainly consists of dolomites and anhydrites. The samples from the cores of this referred interval and the thin sections of these cores were examined in details by X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) Analyses and petrographic microscope. Thin sections taken from the core samples of the Cudi Group’s Bakük, Çamurlu and Telhasan formations (from older to younger) stand out in the diagenetic manner. The analyses of these thin sections showed that dolomitization is the main diagenetic process along with some textural changes such as the increase in the deformation of algal structures, formation of stylolites and secondary porosity. Clay minerals, mainly illites, shows detritic behaviors rather than characters representing a diagenetic origin. Obtained results from this study showed that the dolomitization as diagenetic process plays an important role in oil and gas formations within Cudi Group. Dolomite stoichiometry studies indicated that Cudi Group formations have modern dolomites since they show poor ordering reflections. They are also younger formations which are subjected to longer periods of diagenetic effects in comparison with Uludere Formation’s dolomites.


Tectonomagmatic evolution of bimodal plutons in the central Anatolian crystalline complex, Turkey
Kadioglu, Yk; Dilek, Y; Güleç, Nilgün Türkan; Foland, Ka (University of Chicago Press, 2003-11-01)
The NW-trending Agacoren Intrusive Suite (AIS) on the east side of the Salt Lake (Tuz Golu), Turkey, is part of a curvilinear volcanoplutonic complex along the western edge of the central Anatolian crystalline complex (CACC). Granitoids constitute the predominant lithological group within the AIS and range in composition from monzonite through granite to alkali feldspar granite. Gabbroic rocks occur as irregular intrusive bodies with sinusoidal, irregular contacts with the granitoid plutons and vary from di...
The Upper Cretaceous intrusive rocks with extensive crustal contribution in Hacimahmutusagi Area (Aksaray/Turkey)
Köksal, Serhat (Central Library of the Slovak Academy of Sciences, 2019-06-01)
The Hacimahmutusagi area (Aksaray/Turkey) is located in the western part of the Central Anatolian Crystalline Complex (CACC). Gneiss and marble compose the basement units, while intrusive rocks are gabbros and granitoids. The pegmatitic hornblende gabbros contain pegmatitic to fine-grained hornblendes, plagioclase, clinopyroxene, and accessory opaque minerals. The fine-grained gabbros, on the other hand, are composed of plagioclase, hornblende, and biotite as major components whereas the apatite and opaque ...
Mineralogic evidences of a mid-Paleozoic tectono-thermal event in the Zonguldak terrane, northwest Turkey: implications for the dynamics of some Gondwana-derived terranes during the closure of the Rheic Ocean
Bozkaya, Omer; YALÇIN, HÜSEYİN; Göncüoğlu, Mehmet Cemal (2012-04-01)
The Zonguldak terrane is a Gondwana-derived continental microplate along the Black Sea coast in northwest Anatolia. It includes a Cadomian basement, with oceanic-and island-arc sequences, unconformably overlain by siliciclastic rocks of Ordovician to Middle Silurian age. After a period of deformation and erosion, late Lower Devonian (Emsian) quartzites and shallow-marine limestones unconformably cover Middle Silurian (Wenlock) graptolitic shales. Along several cross sections across the unconformity plane, t...
Rapid cooling history of a Neotethyan ophiolite: Evidence for contemporaneous subduction initiation and metamorphic sole formation

The Beywhir-Hoyran Nappes, including Mesozoic carbonate platform rocks, deepsea sediments, and ophiolite-related units, crop out extensively on the western limb of the Isparta Angle in the Central Taurides, Turkey. The ophiolite-related rocks are represented by variably serpentinized harzburgitic mantle tectonites, tectonically underlain by a subophiolitic metamorphic sole and melange. The harzburgitic mantle tectonites and metamorphic sole are intruded by undeformed isolated dikes. Protoliths of the metamo...
Paleogene evolution and demise of the proto-Paratethys Sea in Central Asia (Tarim and Tajik basins): Role of intensified tectonic activity at ca. 41 Ma
Kaya, Mustafa Yücel; Dupont-Nivet, Guillaume; Proust, Jeannoel; Roperch, Pierrick; Bougeois, Laurie; Meijer, Niels; Frieling, Joost; Fioroni, Chiara; Altıner, Sevinç; Vardar, Ezgi; Barbolini, Natasha; Stoica, Marius; Aminov, Jovid; Mamtimin, Mehmut; Guo Zhaojie, Guo Zhaojie (Wiley, 2019-06-01)
The proto-Paratethys Sea covered a vast area extending from the Mediterranean Tethys to the Tarim Basin in western China during Cretaceous and early Paleogene. Climate modelling and proxy studies suggest that Asian aridification has been governed by westerly moisture modulated by fluctuations of the proto-Paratethys Sea. Transgressive and regressive episodes of the proto-Paratethys Sea have been previously recognized but their timing, extent and depositional environments remain poorly constrained. This hamp...
