Reservoir petrology and production characteristics of the Lytton Springs Oil Field, Caldwell County, Texas
Petty, Scott, 1937-
This thesis is a report of the geology and producing characteristics of the Lytton Springs oil field located in Caldwell County, Texas. X-ray diffraction techniques and thin sections were employed to study the mineralogy of the altered igneous rock commonly referred to as serpentine, from which the oil is being produced. Decline curves were used to study the production characteristics of the field and to make predictions as to the effect of gravity drainage on future production.
