Revisiting and Re-assessing the Middle to Upper Mississippian in a Core Transect across the Anadarko Shelf
Instructors: Dr. Buddy Price, Devon Energy; Dr. Jim Puckette, OSU, & Dr. Michael Grammar, OSU
This core workshop will be held at OPIC in Norman on Sunday October 8th from 10am-2pm
Cost: $45; Students: $15
The Mississippian section in Oklahoma continues to be a hot topic for both oil and gas production and research on carbonate and mixed siliciclastic-carbonate depositional systems. This core workshop will focus on middle to upper Mississippian strata along a transect of public and proprietary cores across the Anadarko Shelf covering some of the primary horizontal drilling targets of the Meramec reservoirs in and around the STACK Play. Recent biostratigraphic interpretations from core and outcrop samples provide new insight for broad regional correlations as well as linkages between the presented wells. Within this framework, the walkthrough will highlight varying play concepts and controls on variations in porosity development at multiple timeframes in the Mississippian. The workshop will also focus on correlations and updates to the depositional interpretations for Meramec reservoirs in the STACK region in Kingfisher, Blaine, and Canadian Counties as well as correlations to downdip intervals in the Sycamore Limestone and Caney Shale in the SCOOP region.
