In siliciclastic and carbonate reservoirs, depositional facies are commonly described as being organized in cyclic successions overprinted by diagenesis. Most reservoir modeling workflows are not able to stochastically reproduce such patterns. Herein, a novel geostatistical method is developed to model depositional facies architectures that are rhythmic and cyclic, together with superimposed diagenetic facies.
