Major Controlling Factors in the Accumulation of Oil and Gas in the Anadarko Basin: Abstract
Twenty major fields in the Anadarko basin contain the equivalent of over 22 billion barrels of oil in place.
Basin configuration, tectonic activity, and processes of sedimentation have been the primary influences affecting the generation and accumulation of these hydrocarbons. Understanding the important elements of these phenomena and how they interact should lead to successful exploration.
A look back over the past indicates that a general knowledge of these basic elements and the use of exploration techniques which would focus on them would have located most major accumulations.
