Description

Accompanied by 26 fold-outs: Plates 2-27. Plate 27: Map of the Van uplift with unitized area (Van Joint Account) outlined by stippling. Plate 26: Schlumberger survey record and geological log of a typical well penetrating a fairly complete section of the Woodbine formation in the Van field. Plate 25: Outline of the original area and the present area of accumulation of oil and gas in the Woodbine formation on the Van uplift. Plate 24: Subsurface distribution and extent of the sub-Clarksville sand in the Eagle Ford formation on the Van uplift. Plate 23: Cross section of the Van uplift from Grand Saline salt dome to Mt. Selman salt dome showing key horizons. Plate 22: Structural map of the Van uplift contoured on top of the Comanche except in faults where contouring is on the fault face. Plate 21: Structural map of the Van uplift contoured on top of the Woodbine formation except in faults where contouring is on the fault face. Plate 20: Regional structure map of the Van uplift contoured on top of the Woodbine formation. Plate 19: Structural map of the Van uplift contoured on top of the Woodbine formation. Plate 18: Structural map of the Van uplift contoured on top of the Eagle Ford formation. Plate 17: Regional structure map of the Van uplift contoured on top of the Austin formation. Plate 16: Structural map of the Van uplift contoured on top of the Austin formation. Plate 15: Regional structure map of the Van uplift contoured on top of the Pecan Gap formation. Plate 14: Structural map of the Van uplift contoured on top of the Pecan Gap formation. Plate 13: Structural map of the Van uplift contoured on top of the Navarro formation. Plate 12: Structural map of the Van uplift contoured on top of the Midway formation. Plate 11: Copy of original subsurface structure map of Van uplift made in 1929 from core drill data. Plate 8: Magnetometer survey of the Van area, Van Zandt county. Plate 9: Geologic section penetrated by drilling in the Van area, Van Zandt county. Plate 10: Map showing areal geology, surface structure, and drainage of the Van area, Van Zandt and Smith counties. Plate 7: Torsion balance gravity curves accompanying the torsion balance reconnaissance survey of the Grand Saline-Van area in Van Zandt and Smith counties. Plate 6: Torsion balance reconnaissance survey of the Grand Saline-Van area in Van Zandt and Smith counties. Plate 2: Regional map of the east Texas geosyncline showing the surface outcrop of the Woodbine formation and the major structural features in east Texas. Plate 3: Stratigraphic succession of Cretaceous and Eocene beds in the East Texas embayment. Plate 4: Refraction seismograph survey of the Van area including the outline of the Van uplift as determined by refraction reconnaissance survey. Plate 5: Torsion balance reconnaissance survey of the Grand Saline-Van area in Van Zandt and Smith counties.
