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, topseals, 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.
