Turbidite sands form the main reservoirs for deepwater fields in the Gulf of Mexico and many deepwater fields throughout the world. Garden Banks 191 Field is a deep-water discovery that, while fairly new, can relate depositional characteristics of reservoirs to an extensive production history. Of particular interest are production characteristics of the 4500-ft sand, a turbidite sheet, and the 8500-ft sand, a turbidite channel. These reservoirs have produced more than 210 billion ft3 since 1993. This study provides valuable insights into how different types of turbidite sands produce through time.
