For the deep South-Atlantic Pre-Salt carbonate reservoirs information on reservoir heterogeneity between core and seismic scale is lacking. Worldwide non-marine carbonate reservoir analogues provide quantitative geometrical and petrophysical data. Large-scale outcrops with similar sedimentological, diagenetic, petrophysical and structural features give insight in reservoir controlling parameters from below core-scale up to seismic scale
