The principal position that Reservoir engineers play in a field's improvement and making plans can't be over priced. Recommending, the main acceptable and so much low cost reservoir depletion schemes has an excellent effect on a field's and eventually a company's profitability. If performed thoroughly, it's going to lead to a providence for the corporate but when performed incorrectly or haphazardly, it's going to bring about financial ruin.

Slumping on an extensive scale however seems to be most typical of delta slopes and submarine canyons and fans. Regardless of whether slumps can be used to determine depositional environment they are important criteria for recognizing palaeoslopes. Palaeocurrent patterns Of the five defining parameters of a sedimentary facies (geometry, lithology, structures, palaeocurrents, and fossils) all but palaeo currents are observational criteria. To determine the palaeocurrents of a facies involves not just the description, but also the interpretation of data.
