The paper examines the relevance, nature, distribution and influences upon diagenetic modifications which affect sediments comprising the Latrobe Group, offshore Gippsland Basin. An attempt is made to characterize the post-depositional mineralogical and textural evolution of Latrobe Group sandstones, on both reservoir and regional scales. Emphasis is placed on the development and dissolution of dolomite cements, key factors which affect reservoir evolution and quality. In addition, preliminary chemical modeling of the interaction between dolomite and pore fluid and the results of stable isotope investigations provide important insight into the processes involved.
