Oil and Gas Occurrence in Lower Cretaceous Rocks, Maverick Basin Area, Southwest Texas

Peter R. Rose


A remarkably small quantity of oil and natural gas has been produced from the predominantly carbonate Lower Cretaceous succession in the Maverick basin of southwest Texas; particularly considering its favorable area, thickness, depth, top-seals, source rocks, complex structural history and widespread hydrocarbon shows. The main problem seems to be a lack of good reservoir rocks. Most oil and gas production to date appears related to fracturing, with its attendant difficulties of effective exploratory prediction and developmental exploitation.
