Title: Anadarko Basin--A Model for Regional Petroleum Accumulations: ABSTRACT

Author(s): G. W. Hill, Jr.

Article Type: Meeting abstract


Many basins being explored today can be viewed as regional petroleum accumulations. The Anadarko basin is used to describe how its depositional and orogenic history, its patterns of deposition and subsequent patterns of hydrocarbon accumulation, and its basic geochemical aspects all combine to make this basin a unique regional petroleum accumulation. The explorationist must view each basin as a unique entity and fully understand its regional characteristics to efficiently compete for the petroleum reserves therein.
