INTEGRATED SYNTHESIS OF PERMIAN BASIN DEPOSITIONAL HISTORY AND STRATIGRAPHIC ARCHITECTURE: DATA AND MODELS FOR RECOVERING EXISTING AND UNDISCOVERED OIL RESOURCES PBSS A PROPOSAL FOR A NEW INITIATIVE BY THE BUREAU OF ECONOMIC GEOLOGY
PROGRAM GOALS • Produce a detailed, comprehensive history of Paleozoic depositional and reservoir systems in the Permian Basin • Create spatially integrated data bases of depositional, stratigraphic, lithologic, and petrophysical properties
TARGET RESOURCES • Development Target: : 23 billion barrels of mobile oil remaining in existing reservoirs • Exploration Target: 3.5 billion barrels of undiscovered oil and NGL resources
VALUE • Provide fundamental stratigraphic and reservoir-specific data in a readily accessible and useable format. • Integrated data will decrease the risk and increase the efficiency of exploitation • Integrated data will define newopportunities for drilling. • Integrated data will form the basis for newengineering approaches and completion practices
SOURCE DATA • Reservoir studies • Cores • Wireline logs • 3D & 2D seismic • Outcrop studies • Published reports • Company data
DELIVERABLES • Text: Written synthesis of history, stratigraphy, facies, structural history, and reservoir development in Permian Basin. • Data: ARC/INFO GIS-based regional structure maps, facies maps, cross sections, core descriptions and data, outcrop descriptions and sections, core data, reservoir data, production data, publications, etc for each play.
TEXT • First-year report on depositional history and stratigraphy of the Cambrian-Permian • Incremental play reports as completed.
