The new concept of integrating sequence stratigraphy and geopressure compartmentalization is a comprehensive risk assessment tool, and this concept is essential for the risk assessment of the deep gas (reserves) on the shelf area of the Gulf of Mexico. This is especially true in the mature West-East Cameron areas where untested large, deep Miocene structural closures exist. In the early 80's, the crests of some of these deep structural closures (>15,000 feet) were tested. Exploration of these deep Miocene closures was discouraging by the failure to find commercial hydrocarbon-bearing formations.
