Unraveling Zechstein 3 Anhydrite Structuration and possible implications for Geo-Drilling Hazards

Ward Teertstra & Guido Hoetz
VU Amsterdam, Netherlands (1); EBN, Netherlands, The (2) Anhydrites Carbonates of the Leine formation, the third evaporitic cycle of the Zechstein group, are widely distributed in the Southern Permian basin. These strata are often drilled through by wells targeting underlying Rotliegend gas prospects. The ZEZ3C/A members constitute brittle rocks sandwiched by the ductile halites from the underlying ZEZ2H and the overlying ZEZ3H. The brittle sheet is frequently rifted (boudinage) and the resulting fragments are often...
