Carbonates

Details For Carbonates

Carbonate rocks comprise between 10 to 15 percent of sedimentary rocks and are primarily comprised of two distinct types—limestones and dolostones. Limestones are primarily composed of calcite while dolostones are primarily comprised of dolomite. Due to the fact that carbonate materials are typically soluble in waters with a slight acidic level, carbonates typically present good permeability and porosity. Consequently, carbonates are ideal petroleum reservoirs.

  • Indiana Limestone
  • Silurian Dolomite
  • Edwards Yellow
  • Austin Chalk
  • Carthage Marble (Burlington Limestone)
  • Edwards Brown
  • Indiana Limestone
  • Desert Pink
  • Lueders
  • Edwards White
  • Indiana Limestone
