Description

The Bureau of Economic Geology at the University of Texas at Austin is initiating an industry-sponsored study of the deep shelf gas play in Texas state waters, where target reservoirs occur at depths from 15,000 to 30,000+ ft beneath the shallow waters of the inner shelf. The major goal is to stimulate participation in the play by reducing risk in the key technical areas of stratigraphic architecture and reservoir quality. The project should decrease risk by focusing exploration to lower risk areas and prevent drilling below economic reservoir basement. The research team will present the proposal as well as presentations on approaches to reservoir-quality prediction and a review of the BEG's past work on reservoir-quality studies of the Texas onshore Tertiary sandstones.
