Abstract: Integrated Study of a Sub-Salt Deep Water Turbidite Play (Gulf of Mexico) Supported by Behind-Outcrop Examples from the Lewis Shale (Wyoming) and the Jackfork Formation (Arkansas)

Imaging tools are sophisticated descendants of dipmeter tools and provide Previous HitverticalNext Hit Previous HitresolutionNext Hit of less than one centimeter if sufficient contrast is present. Such Previous HitresolutionNext Hit makes possible a great number of structural and stratigraphic applications. These include the identification, orientation and angle of fractures, determination of degrees of fracture fill, paleotransport and identification of fine sedimentologic features sometimes not apparent in cores.

The deep water turbidites examined are from tests in Green Canyon Block 562, a behind-outcrop test well of the Lewis Formation (Wyoming) and a quarried channel exposure of the Jackfork Formation (Arkansas). Image logs calibrated to core showcase the Previous HitverticalNext Hit Previous HitresolutionTop of this tool, even in oil-based muds.
