P607 SALT CEMENTATION OF RESERVOIR ROCKS NEAR SALT DOMES IN THE NETHERLANDS NORTH SEA AREA – A NEW MECHANISM 1 F. VAN BERGEN and C.S. DE LEEUW Netherlands Institute of Applied Geoscience TNO – National Geological Survey Department of Geo-Energy PO Box 80015 3508 TA Utrecht The Netherlands Abstract A new mechanism is proposed to explain observed salt plugging of reservoirs adjacent to salt domes in the Netherlands North Sea. Temperature modeling showed that distortion of temperature gradients takes place around salt domes. The combination of this distortion within the local geological setting could result in temperature-driven precipitation and subsequent
