The Asmari Formation (Oligocene-early Miocene) is the most
important reservoir in the oilfields in the Zagros foreland of
the Dezful Embayment of SW Iran. The carbonate reservoirs
of the Asmari Formation are characterized by low matrix
permeability, and effective drainage is dependent on the
occurrence of open fractures. The fractures have been formed
during the Zagros Orogeny since late Miocene, which is also
responsible for the geometry and formation of NW-SE
trending anticlinal traps. Dolomitisation is another factor
controlling reservoir qualities as dolostones in general have
higher porosities than limestones.
