Stratigraphy and Reservoir Characterization of the Turner Sandstone, Southern Powder River Basin, Wyoming

  title={Stratigraphy and Reservoir Characterization of the Turner Sandstone, Southern Powder River Basin, Wyoming},
  author={Andrew Heger},
The upper Turonian Turner Sandy Member of the Carlile Shale has long been a historic producer of hydrocarbons, and recently has become a significant horizontal target in the southern Powder River Basin. Although the Turner has a robust drilling past and currently is one of the most prolific producers in the basin, relatively little has been published on the interval. Questions regarding depositional environment, facies successions, sediment transport processes, sediment sources, and origin of… Expand

The Finn-Shurley field produces petroleum from the Upper Cretaceous Turner Sandstone of the Powder River Basin. The Turner is a member of the Carlile and is overlain by the Sage Breaks and underlainExpand


Depositional Patterns and Unconformities, Upper Cretaceous, Eastern Powder River Basin, Wyoming
Abstract A study of the Upper Cretaceous marine interval (1200 ft thick) in the eastern Powder River Basin from the base of the Belle Fourche Formation to the top of the Niobrara Formation revealsExpand
Lowstand deltas in the Frontier Formation, Powder River basin, Wyoming: Implications for sequence stratigraphic models
Deposits of lowstand deltas formed on the floor of the Cretaceous Interior seaway of North America are found in the Cenomanian, lower Belle Fourche Member of the Frontier Formation, central Wyoming.Expand
Configuration of shelf sandstone oil reservoirs, Upper Cretaceous (Turonian) Turner Sandy member of Carlilie Shale, Powder River basin, Wyoming
Oil production in the Upper Cretaceous Turner Sandy Member of the Carlile shale on the east flank of the Powder River basin is established in two types of stratigraphic traps characterized byExpand
Lacustrine and Fluvial-Deltaic Depositional Systems, Fort Union Formation (Paleocene), Powder River Basin, Wyoming and Montana
The Powder River basin is a Laramide foreland basin that was filled by a combination of fluvial, deltaic, paludal, and lacustrine sediments. The depositional history of the Fort Union Formation wasExpand
Organic Composition of Some Upper Cretaceous Shale, Powder River Basin, Wyoming
The lower Upper Cretaceous strata in northeastern Wyoming, which have yielded major quantities of oil and gas, were sampled at boreholes in Converse, Johnson, and Weston Counties. Cores ofExpand
Frontier Formation, Southwest Powder River Basin, Wyoming
The Upper Cretaceous Frontier formation is a conspicuous sandy unit in the predominantly fine-grained rocks of the Colorado group in Wyoming. The Frontier formation is an important oil-producingExpand
Paleotectonics and Hydrocarbon Accumulation, Powder River Basin, Wyoming
The Belle Fourche arch, a subtle northeast-trending paleoarch, extends across the central part of the Powder River basin, Wyoming, to the Black Hills uplift. The arch is the result of differentialExpand
Statistical modeling of biogenically enhanced permeability in tight reservoir rock
Abstract Bioturbation is generally perceived to be detrimental to bulk permeability by reducing primary grain sorting, homogenizing sediment, and introducing mud as burrow linings and feces. RecentExpand
Along-Strike Variations In Stratigraphic Architecture of Shallow-Marine Reservoir Analogues: Upper Cretaceous Panther Tongue Delta and Coeval Shoreface, Star Point Sandstone, Wasatch Plateau, Central Utah, U.S.A.
Abstract Along-strike variations in sediment supply and process regime may result in different facies distributions, preservational biases, and stratigraphic architectures in shallow-marine strata.Expand
Mudstone diversity: Origin and implications for source, seal, and reservoir properties in petroleum systems
Mudstone is the most abundant sedimentary rock and variously acts as sources, seals, and shale gas reservoirs in petroleum systems. Many important physicochemical properties of mudstones are stronglyExpand
