Brine Contribution to Hydrothermal Albitization Concomitant to Productive Reservoir Formation within the Cover (West Siberia)

Corrosion and regeneration types of plagioclase albitization have been determined in a terrigenous complex of productive reservoirs within the cover; this reflects two settings of tectonic-hydrothermal activation in a riftogenic sedimentary basin. Under the pulsating stress conditions (geodynamic anomalies), all plagioclases experience corrosion and, consequently, deanorthitization, with formation of authigenic albite foraminated crystals.
