... and Tensleep faults. The Horn fault parallels foliation in the Precambrian rocks; whereas, the Tensleep fault is a rejuvenated Precambrian fault showing that the structural gram of the basement influenced later deformation.

... in the associated sandstones. Several faults complicate the otherwise simple local structure, but the strata are basically flatlying to gently tilted and provide a baseline for fracture characteristics in unfolded Tensleep strata that is useful for understanding the more complicated fracture systems found in folded...

... distances. In accordance with this analysis of Tensleep fields in the Big Horn basin, there are three types of basically anticlinal reservoirs that may be defined on the basis of intensity and location of faulting, related hydrodynamic condition, and the API gravity of their produced crude oil relative...

.... The subsidiary channel filled with impermeable Phosphoria sediments provides an additional 160 ft. of closure at the top of the Tensleep Sandstone in the critical southeast direction. The effect of the fault shown on Figure 15 is negligible at the top of the Tensleep because of erosion of the Tensleep...

... vugs, fracturing, and faulting. On the basis of thicker, persistent, nonreservoir dolomite and dolomite- and anhydrite-cemented sandstone zones that can be located on the logs, the Tensleep reservoir was subdivided into zones. Maps of these individual zones reveal a complex reservoir distribution which...

This study characterized the heterogeneous fracture intensity that develops within the Middle Pennsylvanian to Lower Permian Tensleep Sandstone as a result of fault-propagation folding as it is exposed at the Alcova anticline in central Wyoming ( Figure 1 ).

... of fractures in Tensleep reservoirs in Wyoming. Most of these reservoirs are located on anticlines associated with basement thrust faults, but there is significant variability in degree of folding and in the related style and intensity of fracturing in the different anticlines. At the surface, Flat Top...

... wells, actual oil recoveries have been low ( Peterson, 1990 ). This suggests that more intense compartmentalization exists in Tensleep reservoirs. Because of associated stratification changes, 2.0-bounding surfaces are probably a further cause of compartmentalization. Fractures and faults are probably...
