Use of high resolution 3D seismic data to evaluate Quaternary valley evolution history during transgression, offshore San Luis Pass, Gulf of Mexico
A novel, shallow-investigation, high-resolution 3D (HR3D) seismic acquisition system has been employed, for the first time in the Gulf of Mexico, to characterize CO₂ storage potential and de-risk targets for sequestration. ...
Paleogeographic evolution during the Eocene Upper Wilcox in the Houston embayment with consideration of the Yoakum Canyon fill
The Eocene Upper Wilcox clastic wedge represents the second major pulse of terrigenous material into the Gulf of Mexico basin. Recent interest in the Wilcox has been reinvigorated by the drilling of the Baha prospect in ...
The Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary deposit in the Gulf of Mexico : oceanic basin response to the Chicxulub impact and geomechanics of reservoir-scale sand injectites, Panoche Hills, California
Hydrocarbon exploration in the last decade has yielded sufficient data to evaluate the Gulf of Mexico basin response to the Chicxulub asteroid impact. Given its passive marine setting and proximity to the impact structure ...
Shelf-to-basin architecture and facies variability of a Cretaceous intrashelf basin in the northwest Gulf of Mexico
The geomorphic expression of intrashelf basin systems (ISBs) and their associated facies patterns is extremely subtle, with shelf-to-basin dip angles that can average 0.3° across the slope profile. This presents an issue ...
Fabric development and pore-throat reduction in a mass-transport deposit in the Jubilee gas field, eastern Gulf of Mexico : consequences for the sealing capacity of MTDs
Mass-transport complexes (MTCs) and Mass-transport deposits (MTDs) are important stratigraphic elements in many deepwater basins. MTCs have traditionally been identified as seals but can also act as migration pathways. ...
