This in-progress multiclient study will reconstruct the depositional, tectonic, and thermal history of the Powder River Basin. The study will include 50 to 55 wells distributed isotropically across the basin. Particular attention will be paid to creating a fully integrated geologic model from the Cambrian to present day. Models will be calibrated using log porosities, corrected wireline log temperatures, and thermal indicators (Mean Ea and Ro). Hydrocarbon generation history will be calculated for all plausible source rocks, and the potential for preserving hydrocarbons against cracking will be examined in reservoirs of all ages.
This study is open for subscription, with a discount offered to early subscribers. We anticipate that our study will become the gold standard for assessing the thermal history and maturity levels in the basin, and thus will be an essential source of information for any company that wants to explore scientifically in the Powder River Basin.
