RI0278. Depositional Systems and Controls on Reservoir Quality (Determined from Core Data) in Deeply Buried Tertiary Strata in the Texas-Louisiana Gulf of Mexico, by W. A. Ambrose, R. G. Loucks, and S. P. Dutton. 80 p., 64 figs., 1 table, 2013. RI0278, $20.00. In this report, the authors used whole core data to provide a framework for interpreting depositional origin, reservoir-quality, and mineralogical-composition in deeply buried (>10,000-ft) Tertiary strata in in the Texas-Louisiana Gulf of Mexico. Funded by the Deep Shelf Gas project, Report of Investigations 278 demonstrates that relative position within the sequence stratigraphic framework and facies tract can exert powerful controls on reservoir quality, even in deeply buried successions.
