Stratigraphic Oil and Gas Fields—Classification, Exploration Methods, and Case Histories
With the dwindling number of untested structural prospects, particularly onshore in North America and Europe, exploration for new stratigraphic hydrocarbon fields becomes increasingly imperative, and all technological advances of recent (pre-1945) years must be utilized in this important search. This publication’s objective was to obtain case histories of fields found since 1945 and to show how the new technology has been applied to the search for stratigraphic-type oil and gas fields. Contained within this publication are 35 case histories, complimented by chapters on geologic exploration methods and geophysical exploration methods.

Well logs are used qualitatively to make Stratigraphic correlations and interpretations of depositional environment. Formational fluid properties, porosity, and compositional attributes are computed quantitatively from many well logs for use in preparation of exploration maps. Dipmeter data are treated statistically and incorporated with other log data for use in making stratigraphic interpretations and predictions. Computers can be used effectively to process digitized well logs and associated data; plotters are used to display exploration maps automatically.
