A REGIONAL GEOLOGIC STUDY OF CARBONIFEROUS SANDSTONE AND CARBONATE INTERVALS IN THE SAN JUAN BASIN, NORTHWESTERN NEW MEXICO, NORTHEASTERN ARIZONA, AND SOUTHWESTERN COLORADO - Available in RAPID
This study assesses the potential for reservoir-quality facies within Carboniferous (Mississippian and Pennsylvanian) rocks of the deeper San Juan Basin. The numerous wells drilled on the Four Corners platform, including those from proven producing areas such as Tocito Field, plus outcrop exposures of equivalent facies, provide an excellent framework from which to develop exploration models and exploitation data for deeper portions of the San Juan Basin. In order to provide this geological information Core Laboratories did the following:
This study entails information which can be utilized for improved exploration and exploitation activities; that is, (1) provide a set of working maps and cross-sections depicting sandstone/carbonate facies and associated paleogeographic trends; and (2) generate rock geological/petrophysical/engineering data for these facies that defines and characterizes productive and potentially productive rock.
