ABSTRACT The lower Miocene (Oligocene?) "Planulina Formation" (FOOTNOTE 2) of South Louisiana is a sequence of interbedded sands and deep water shales beneath the Siphonina davisi zone and above the Abbeville facies of the Anahuac Formation. The "Planulina Formation", as presently known, occurs along a narrow band extending from Lake Verret in Assumption Parish westward through Cameron, Louisiana into coastal Texas. The first discovery of gas in Planulina sands was made in 1945 by Magnolia… 
Structural Styles, Their Plate Tectonic Habitats, and Hydrocarbon Traps in Petroleum Provinces
Broadly interrelated assemblages of geologic structures constitute the fundamental structural styles of petroleum provinces. These assemblages generally are repeated in regions of similar

Abstract The US portion of the Gulf Coast Basin is that country’s greatest petroleum province, having produced about 31% of the oil and about 48% of the gas. Jurassic evaporites, deposited in basins
