Hydrocarbons in deep water Sabah are reservoired within an approximately 500m thick sequence of Late Miocene (H110 to H160) turbidite lobes that are interspersed with mass transport deposits. These deep water clastic sandstone reservoirs vary in thickness and reservoir quality, which impacts prospectivity across several fields spanning 45km along depositional dip from a proximal to distal setting. In this paper we investigate the factors controlling reservoir properties and diagenesis in a proximal to distal turbidite depositional environment in the deep-water Sabah Baram Delta province.
