Abstract

To support the practical application of research outcomes within the industry, this report serves as a roadmap to the literature produced by the Bureau of Economic Geology as part of the Geological Analysis of Primary and Secondary Tight Gas Sands Objectives Project under the Gas Research Institute (GRI) Tight Gas Sands Research Program from 1982 to 1992. We synthesize key findings from geological studies published in 17 GRI topical reports, over 90 Bureau of Economic Geology monographs, peer-reviewed journal articles, contributions to other GRI reports, and presentations and abstracts in conference proceedings. The purpose of this report is to provide a comprehensive index to this body of literature.

The completion of the national survey, Atlas of Major Low-Permeability Sandstone Gas Reservoirs in the Continental United States, presented an opportune moment to compile and summarize research findings spanning diverse regions, formations, and geological and engineering subjects. These findings, disseminated through publications in both geological and engineering journals, as well as GRI topical reports, are intended to be cataloged in this report.

Furthermore, this report is designed to complement the Atlas of Major Low-Permeability Sandstone Gas Reservoirs in the Continental United States, which consolidates geological, reservoir characterization, and engineering insights from 24 productive low-permeability sandstone formations across 13 basins.
