      The Permian basin of west Texas and Southeastern New Mexico is one of the major petroleum producing regions of the United States. This basin produced 3% of the world's petroleum in and in that year, 1% of the world's proven reserves were in the Permian basin (Robichaud, ). Most of the Upper Permian hydrocarbon reservoirs are in San Andres and Grayburg formations (Galloway et al., ). The Upper Devonian Big Valley Formation in southern Alberta is a m thick carbonate succession, unconformably overlain by organic-rich source rocks of the Exshaw Formation. The Exshaw Formation is part of a global continuum of mudrocks deposited under anoxic conditions, representing a distinct interval in Earth’s climatic, terrestrial and marine evolution, and the generation of prolific.

        The spline-generated isopach maps are broadly similar to isopach maps drawn by highly experienced volcanologists. It is observed that in some of the examples, particularly that of the Mount St. Helens eruption, the isopachs produced here are more comparable to those determined using numerical models (e.g., Folch et al. ), than hand-drawn maps. The Late Devonian Three Forks Formation of the Williston Basin is an important unit in the Bakken petroleum system, with Christopher, J.E., , Transitional Devonian-Mississippian Formations of Southern Saskatchewan, Regina, Saskatchewan: Saskatchewan Mineral Resources Rep p. Inspired by Richard LeFever’s isopach maps.

      topographic maps, separate chapters include coverage of strike, dip, thickness calcula­ tions, map notation, cross sections, structure contours, form lines, three point problems, fold and fault nomenclature, maps of folds, faults, faulted folds and unconformities, and isopach maps. Having cobbled together. possible, this report presents quantitative maps of the extent, thickness variations, gross lithofacies distributions, and evidences of age for the nonmarine Eocene-lower Miocene Sespe Formation and the interfingering Oligocene-lower Miocene transgressive marine Vaqueros Formation (and its equivalents) in the Los Angeles Basin region.

The regional distributions (isopach maps) of the ten formally recognized formations and four groups comprising the Devonian System in Saskatchewan are presented on the CD (Figure 2) along with the structural attitudes (structure maps) of the ten formations.

In addition, isopach maps of six halite (salt) sub-units within in the study area are. The first published set of computer-plotted isopach and structure maps by Saskatchewan Energy and Mines was undertaken by Paterson () for the major De­ vonian formations in the province.

This was followed by a similar set of maps for the major lower Paleozoic for­ mations (Paterson, ). These maps will be super­. contains computer-generated regional structural and isopach maps of the Devonian System in Saskatchewan, North Dakota, and Montana. These include the structural and isopach maps of ten formally recognized formations, and isopach maps of six halite (salt) sub-units, and four groups.

In addition, stratigraphic tops data, a description of the. The structure of the Winnipeg Formation reflects the Williston Basin’s earliest subsidence and its deposition center at North Dakota. The maximum thickness of the Winnipeg Formation in Saskatchewan is 68 meters which sits on the boundary of Saskatchewan – North Dakota [19].

American Association of Petroleum Geologists, Bulletin, v. Devonian Period - Devonian Period - Devonian geology: The union of the paleocontinents of Laurentia and Baltica occurred near the beginning of the Devonian to form a single landmass that has been referred to both as Laurussia and as Euramerica.

The northern portion of the combined landmass gave rise to widespread areas of continental desert, playa, and alluvial plain deposits that form one of. The computer-generated isopach map of the Prairie Evapo rite salt (where salt > 40%) in some cases closely mimics subsurface features, such as Winnipegosis reef build-ups and areas of local salt.

These include: the Devonian Elk Point Group (Chapter 10), where the internal subdivisions are depicted in a series of paleogeographic maps rather than as isopach and lithofacies maps; the Devonian Beaverhill Lake Group (Chapter 11), where the internal stratigraphy is portrayed as an initial transgressive phase and a subsequent regressive phase.

Devonian Leduc reef trends in relation to basement faults. The Upper Devonian Leduc Formation in central Alberta (Figure 8) contains elongated reefal complexes on a broad carbonate platform (Switzer et al. These reefs, encased in Ireton shale, have been prolific oil and gas producers.

The overthickening on the isopach maps suggests that carbonate epikarstification and dissolution of Devonian strata were initiated at the start of McMurray deposition, and likely before as well. The increase of deepening of the anomalies from the McMurray isopach map (10–20 m) and the SCU contour map (60– m) are interpreted to indicate.
