    Abstract

    Fault-controlled dolomitization has significant impact on reservoir properties in subsurface reservoirs. Origin, geometry, and internal reservoir characteristics of such dolomite bodies constrain adequate reservoir modeling and production. Fault-related dolomites in Albian platform carbonates (Basque-Cantabrian Basin, Spain) provide a detailed analog for subsurface reservoirs.Early diagenesis includes marine cements, exposure and phreatic freshwater cements. Dolomite bodies (
