Title: Peterson and South Peterson Multipay Fields, Roosevelt County, New Mexico: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Gary L. Sandlin, Frank L. Schatz

Article Type: Meeting abstract


The Peterson and South Peterson fields, located on the northside of the generally east-west-trending Matador arch in southern Roosevelt County, New Mexico, are on relatively small structural features separated by dry holes. Both fields produce from the Middle Silurian Fusselman carbonate and from bedded Upper Pennsylvanian limestone. Production from the Fusselman in the Peterson field is limited to one well whereas production in the South Peterson field covers a wider area. The Peterson field produces from the Fusselman because of structure whereas the South Peterson field produces as the result of combination structure and pinch-out of Fusselman against the granite high on the south. The field was found using common depth point (CDP) seismic data.
