Title: Sandstone Dikes as Conduits for Oil Migration Through Shales

Author(s): Olaf P. Jenkins (2)

An Eocene sandstone lies between these two formations, and oil accumulating in this sandstone from the shale beneath could be transferred to the Miocene sandstone above through sandstone dike conduits in the Kreyenhagen shale.
