GEOGRAPHIC SCOPE

Permian Basin study area

Barnett shale study area

program goals
PROGRAM GOALS
  • Produce a detailed, comprehensive history of Paleozoic depositional and reservoir systems in the Permian Basin
  • Create spatially integrated data bases of depositional, stratigraphic, lithologic, and petrophysical properties
target resources
TARGET RESOURCES
  • Development Target: : 23 billion barrels of mobile oil remaining in existing reservoirs
  • Exploration Target: 3.5 billion barrels of undiscovered oil and NGL resources
value
VALUE
  • Provide fundamental stratigraphic and reservoir-specific data in a readilyaccessible and useable format.
  • Integrated data will decrease the risk and increase the efficiency of exploitation
  • Integrated data will define newopportunities for drilling.
  • Integrated data will form the basis for newengineering approaches and completion practices
source data
SOURCE DATA
  • Reservoir studies
  • Cores
  • Wireline logs
  • 3D & 2D seismic
  • Outcrop studies
  • Published reports
  • Company data
  • NEW STUDIES
deliverables
DELIVERABLES
  • Text: Written synthesis of history, stratigraphy, facies, structural history, and reservoir development in Permian Basin.
  • Data: ARC/INFO GIS-based regional structure maps, facies maps, cross sections, core descriptions and data, outcrop descriptions and sections, core data, reservoir data, production data, publications, etc for each play.
