Oil Field Overlays for Satellite Images

January 01, 1994


Three oil field overlays are included at the end of this book to help you better visualize the scale of patterns in depositional facies for various key modern carbonate areas relative to representative carbonate reservoirs. The overlays are printed at 1:1,000,000 scale, 1:250,000 scale, and 1:100,000 scale (see the following three pages). The following representative carbonate reservoirs are shown in map view on each overlay.

(1) Judy Creek field, a reef complex in the west-central Alberta basin, Canada, producing from the Devonian Swan Hills Formation.

(2) McElroy field, which produces from shelf deposits of the Permian Grayburg Formation and is located along the eastern side of the Central Basin platform in the United States Permian basin. (Only the Chevron-operated portion of the field is shown.)

(3) Fateh field, located in offshore Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and producing from reef and fore reef deposits of the Cretaceous Mishrif Formation.
