Possible Future Petroleum Provinces of North America
Building upon a 1941 symposium and publication titled Possible Future Oil Provinces of the United States and Canada, this volume contains descriptions of nearly twice as many possible provinces, and discusses additional possibilities in some of the provinces considered in the 1941 publication. The inclusion and exclusion of provinces in this publication were done with the purpose of discussing possible, rather than probably or proved, provinces. The provinces of Alaska, western Canada, Pacific Coast states and Nevada, Rocky Mountain Region, Mid-Continent region, west Texas and eastern New Mexico, Fort Worth Basin, south Texas, Mexico, western Gulf Coast, continental shelf of Gulf of Mexico, southeastern United States, northeastern United States, Appalachian region, eastern Canada, and the eastern Interior Basin are presented here.
