dc.description.abstractThe goal of the Oil and Gas Resource Atlas Series: Offshore Northern Gulf of Mexico is to develop an atlas of hydrocarbon plays that integrates data for oil and gas reservoirs with large-scale patterns of basin fill and age. During the second year of the 4-year program, tasks centered on program management and analysis of reservoir data. Approximately 140 plays have been identified in the Federal OCS and Texas State waters. Plays in Texas State waters are gas-prone and structurally trapped in rollover anticlines. In the Federal OCS, highly productive structural styles include growth-faulted rollover anticlines and salt domes. Lower Miocene plays are characterized by progradational and submarine-fan reservoirs of Lenticulina and Siphonina davisi chrono zones. Middle Miocene plays are characterized by progradational and retrogradational depositional styles. Upper Miocene plays are dominated by progradational depositional style, and Plio-Pleistocene plays include abundant progradational and submarine-fan reservoirs.
