Stratigraphic column for megaregional cross section ( Figure 4 ), northern Gulf of Mexico Basin. Letters refer to the stratigraphic sequences defined by Feng (1995) for the deep Gulf of Mexico. The study area.
Generalized stratigraphic framework of the northern Gulf of Mexico Basin with reservoirs and probable source intervals highlighted. Modified from Piggott and Pulham (1993). MCSB = middle Cretaceous sequence boundary.
Events chart for the petroleum systems within the northern Green Canyon/Ewing Bank study area showing the temporal relationships of the essential elements and processes. Preservation time represents time since initial critical moment of peak generation. Critical moments represent the time each source rock experienced peak oil generation (0.90–0.95 %Ro) as shown in Figure 12, Figure 13, and Figure 16.
