ABSTRACT Gas was discovered in upper Wilcox sandstones in 1959 at Northeast Thompsonville field. Reservoirs are found on a faulted anticline at depths ranging from 9,400 to 13,700 ft. The Wilcox is dominantly shale, and stratigraphic units thicken off structure. At the crest of the structure is a growth fault that has about 1100 ft of throw, downthrown to the basin, and has a low dip of about 30 degrees, decreasing in the deep section near 12,000 ft. Sandstones are thin-bedded, 1 to 2 ft thick… CONTINUE READING
