Abstract: Seismic and Landsat in a Wrench Previous HitFaultingNext Hit System


G. Pat Bolden

Three high-multiplicity seismic profiles demonstrate the compressional nature of the Previous HitfaultingNext Hit along the Double Mountain lineament in northeast Garza County in the Permian Basin. NASA high-altitude imagery using Landsat parameters delineate the traces of these faults on the surface.

Both east-west and north-south seismic profiles define the Double Mountain Lineament and the associated Previous HitfaultingNext Hit. A one-mile-wide pop-up block bound by high-angle reverse faults demonstrates the compressional nature of the Previous HitfaultingTop. This structure has been drilled with several Strawn and Ellenburger producers, confirming the seismic, high-altitude imagery, and subsurface interpretation.
