Introduction. Within the United States, Texas is a crucial part of oil and gas production. The East Texas Basin plays a large role in the production of oil and gas coming out of Texas. Understanding the the East Texas Basin begins with knowledge of the geologic history, lithology, structure, organic petrology, and production history. Geologic history of the East Texas Basin shows how hydrocarbons were deposited and in what conditions they were formed.

The second phase involved the intrusion of the I-type granites. Like the S-type granites, the strike-slip movement affected the intrusion of the I- type granitoids which occurred along the Colenso fault in the Swartland and Boland terranes about 540- 520 Ma (Scheepers, 1995; Scheepers & Nortje, 2000). The intrusion of the post-orogenic to anorogenic A- type granites occurred at approximately 520- 500 Ma, representing the third phase of magmatism (Scheepers & Nortje, 2000). They are intrusive in the Tygerberg and Swartland terranes (Scheepers & Nortje, 2000). The final phase of magmatism is often negle... ... middle of paper ... ...ircon ages of the Cape Granite Suite: implications for the magmatic evolution of the Saldania Belt.
Exploration Feasibility Study of Kansas’s Central Uplift for Intended use in Stochastic Decision Tree Analysis in New Drilling Programs Prepared for: A.C.T. Operating Company Midland, Texas NOTE- PLACE A TTU SEAL IN THE BACKGROUND ABSTRACT My master’s project consisted of an exploration program feasibility study of Kansas’s Central Uplift. The purpose of the study was to see if drilling is justifiable in this region after analyzing Kansas’s Geological Survey lease production database. The Central Uplift has three main reservoir targets (Pennsylvanian age –Lansing/Kansas City, and Ordovician-Arbuckle). Some fields in the area have been producing since pre-1960s.

The prospect is most likely one of gas and not oil. A plausible source rock for this reservoir is the Dingo Claystone which is known to generate both gas and oil in the area but mainly gas (Parry, 1988). A seal is created by the Muderong Shale member of the Cretaceous (West Barrow).
