Author(s): Ira H. Cram

Article Type: Meeting abstract


Assessment of the possible economic importance of the world's petroleum resources at great depth requires a reconnaissance study of the areas in which accumulations of petroleum can exist at such depths. The areal extent, volume, and general character of the sedimentary rocks between the depths of 15,000 feet and effective basement throughout the world are reported. The results of drilling to date together with some of the exploration, development, and production problems are discussed.
