This paper is a summary of our work on the relationship between under-compacted shale and abnormal pressure in the Tertiary portion of the Gulf of Mexico Basin. A major objective of this study is to map the depth to the top of the undercompacted shale, as located using shale density (cuttings samples), conductivity, sonic, plus bulk density logs relative to the depth to the top of abnormal pore pressure as determined using bottom-hole pressure (BHP) and repeat formation tester (RFT) data. Geopressure profiles (formation pressure versus depth curves) were most useful for such mapping because the geopressure profiles showed...
