Title: Stratigraphic Dipmeter Interpretation--Fort Worth Basin Submarine-Slope Systems: ABSTRACT

Author(s): L. M. Grace

Article Type: Meeting abstract


Submarine-slope systems pose several exploitation problems. Previous Dipmeter interpretation techniques using the standard Dipmeter with CLUSTER (mark of Schlumberger) processing are highly successful in fluvial to deltaic sequences, but lack accuracy in the anastomosing depositional environment associated with submarine-slope systems. Both the delineation of individual depositional units and the precise trend determination of each are essential for optimum exploitation. A new interpretation technique has been devised to provide accurate and consistent answers to these problems. The technique involves the use of multiple logging passes and detailed stratigraphic correlation to provide a paleocurrent and depositional analysis.
