The discovery of commercially important oil sands at the base of the Vicksburg formation, on the flanks of some Texas Gulf Coast dome structures during the past few years, recalls the necessity for constant re-examination of the older producing areas by methods which make full use of the newest proved geological tools.
This paper employs the now common electrical well log, in conjunction with the best paleontological opinions, to identify and to map the areal extent and thickness of the basal Vicksburg sand in the Texas Gulf Coast, and to predict, with some foundation, its future possibilities for commercial oil production on the older known structures.
