The wells at North Haynesville produce oil and gas from oolitic lime grainstones marking the top of the Jurassic Smackover Formation in northern Claiborne Parish, Louisiana. These grainstones are the terminal high energy phase of a regressive sequence deposited on a carbonate ramp which developed across the northern margin of the North Louisiana Salt Dome Basin.

This core workshop is the product of an effort by the SEPM Carbonate Research Group to emphasize the value of careful core interpretation to hydrocarbon exploration and production programs. Initially conceived as a small conference the format was expanded in response to strong interest from the geologic community. The end result was a workshop including 14 core displays. The notes were intended as a guide but the thorough documentation of these cores will be of interest to many others.
