Abstract: Possible Future Petroleum Provinces in Western Gulf Basin

B. B. Mason


Will additional significant crude oil reserves be added in the Western Gulf Basin? A task force of industry geologists working in Region 6--Western Gulf Basin, for the National Petroleum Council study, "Possible Future Petroleum Provinces of the United States," attempts to answer this question. The potential of currently nonproducing areas is stressed; however, possible extensions to producing trends are also analyzed from a geologic and production controls standpoint. This paper summarizes the thoughts and ideas from eight industry papers covering the Western Gulf Basin.
