EXPLORATION PROBLEMS OF THE WILLISTON BASIN*

K. E. BURG, Geophysical Service, Inc., Dallas, Texas

ABSTRACT

Discovery of oil in North Dakota by the Amerada Petroleum Corporation in their Clarence Iverson well in the vicinity of the Nesson Ant cline, near the center of the Williston Basin, initiated a very active exploration program covering the entire basin. Interest in the area has continued because many of the wells drilled in other portions of the basin have resulted in discovery of oil in commercial quantities.

Because of the wide regional extent of the Williston Basin and presence of a rather complete Mesozoic and Paleozoic section, many exploration problems are encountered. The role of the seismograph in the solution of these problems is discussed.
