Clay mineralogy and diagenesis of the Upper Permian Rustler Formation, near Carlsbad, New Mexico (Microform) Publication Type: Miscellaneous: Authors: Glenn, RT: Year: Keywords: Diagenesis – New Mexico – Carlsbad Region, Geology Stratigraphic – Permian Rustler Formation (N.M. and Tex.), Mineralogy – New Mexico – Carlsbad Region. ABSTRACT r' The Sierra de la Cruz area consists of strata ttat range in age from late Pennsylvanian to Quaternary. These strata include the Madera Limestone, the Bursum, Abo, and.

      The geology of the San Andres formation produced only a fraction of the OOIP, yielding some 40 million barrels of oil. The ongoing opportunity is a result of the low level of permeability in the lenticular dolomite formation of the San Andres. Hunter Oil’s operations involve re-accessing these existing reservoirs, and developing the resource.

The "Blaine of Texas" is herein called the San Andres because it is believed that unconformity at top of Dog Creek shale on east side of basin can be tied into top of San Andres on west side of basin by means of well logs.

The lower San Andres Formation in Cochran and Hockley Counties, Texas, is one of the most prolific hydrocarbon-bearing horizons of the Permian basin.

It is a cyclic sequence of shallow-water carbonates and evaporites which prograded across the Northwest shelf toward the Midland and Delaware basins.

Residual oil zones contain remnants of oil that were not swept away by a natural waterflood of a huge paleo trap of oil present in the San Andres formation at the close of the Mesozoic and at the.

In Fullerton Field, the San Andres Formation comprises high frequency cycles of upward shoaling shallow-marine carbonates.

Studies of nine cores ( ft) in FSAU reveal four peritidal and five shallow subtidal depositional facies based on texture, fossil assemblages, and sedimentary structures. It was recognized that the reservoirs in the Permian Basin’s San Andres formation dolomites were (1) more pervasively dolomitized, more so than the Main Pay Zones (MPZs), (2) have a very live oil in the upper feet of the ROZ, (3) have better porosity and permeability showing nominally faster processing times than the MPZs, and (4) appear.

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.

The primary destroyers of porosity are the two types of calcite cement, which tend to completely cement the coarsest, best sorted, and originally most porous zones of the San Miguel vertical sequences.
