Title: Unique Oil-Gas-Water Transition Zone: ABSTRACT

Author(s): W. A. Adent, S. E. Szasz

Article Type: Meeting abstract


Detailed subsurface studies of the F-1 sandstone (Ranger zone, lower Repetto Formation, lower Pliocene) resulted in the mapping of an oil-gas-water transition zone where the gas is postulated to have appeared as a secondary feature, associated with the pressure relaxation of the oil reservoir, and to have migrated from the oil zone downdip to form the oil-gas-water transition zone.
