Garden Banks 191 is about 160 miles (257 km) from Lafayette, Louisiana, in 700 feet (214 m) of water. Block 191 has produced over 230 BCF dry gas from Pleistocene reservoirs since 1993. We will address the production characteristics of turbidite sheet (4500’ Sand) and channel (8500’ Sand) sand reservoirs. Understanding the distribution of shale breaks within both reservoir types is critical because the shales compartmentalize gas production and control water encroachment through the reservoirs.
The 4500’ Sand reservoir is about 1000 ft (305 m) thick and is composed of interbedded sands and shales typical of amalgamated and layered...
