  • Stratigraphy, sedimentology, and geochemistry of the Upper Mississippian
           Pride Shale in the Appalachian Basin

  • Sediment transport processes and lateral facies gradients across a muddy
           shelf: Examples from the Geneseo Formation of central New York, United
    • Authors: Wilson, R. D; Schieber, J.
      Pages: 423 - 431
      Abstract: Studying fine-grained siliciclastic deposits of late Middle Devonian in the northern Appalachian Basin provides an exquisite natural laboratory to observe the complex environments in which mud can accumulate. More detailed correlation and facies characterization of this succession provide a wealth of information and insight into the diverse transport mechanisms responsible for distributing clastics hundreds of kilometers away from a tectonically active source area. Commencement of the third tectophase of the Acadian orogeny and a concurrent transgression is expressed throughout the region through the development of a basin-scale unconformity (the Taghanic Onlap) above a shelf collapse (i.e., Tully Limestone) and widespread deposition of organic-matter–rich mudstones. Deposition of the lower Genesee Group is believed to reflect the coupling of this local expression of a global eustatic highstand event and contemporaneous cratonic downwarping as a flexural response of the craton to a continent–microcontinent collision. High-resolution stratigraphy has allowed differentiation of genetically related packages, composed of distinct lithofacies, with characteristic physical, biological, and chemical attributes. The present paper advances an overview of this detailed investigation based on detailed core measurement and surface correlation to assess the controlling factors on the mid-Devonian stratigraphic fill of the northern Appalachian Basin and demonstrate the distribution in mudstone facies and their relation to changing environmental conditions.

  • Deep-water clastic systems in the Upper Carboniferous (Upper
           Mississippian-Lower Pennsylvanian) Shannon Basin, western Ireland
    • Authors: Martinsen, O. J; Pulham, A. J, Elliott, T, Haughton, P, Pierce, C, Lacchia, A. R, Barker, S, Obradors Latre, A, Kane, I, Shannon, P, Sevastopulo, G. D.
      Pages: 433 - 439
      Abstract: The Upper Carboniferous Shannon Basin of western Ireland contains a more-than-2300-m-thick (7540 ft) basin-fill succession, shallowing upward from deep-water to deltaic and incised fluvial deposits. The deep-water basin floor and slope succession is world renowned as an analog for hydrocarbon-bearing deep-water sandstones on several continental margins such as the basins in East and West Africa, South America, the Gulf of Mexico, and not least offshore northwest Europe.The Shannon Basin is frequently visited by both academia and industry for research and training purposes. A series of behind-outcrop research boreholes reveals the subsurface expression of the deep-water rocks and is complemented by seismic-scale cliff exposures. The succession is interpreted as a first-order basin-scale linked sedimentary system. This system can be analyzed using the principles of source-to-sink analysis and leaves the visitor with a complete picture of the basin fill, enhanced by spectacular sedimentological and stratigraphic detail.

  • Multiscale Gilbert-type delta lobe architecture and heterogeneities: The
           case of the Roda Sandstone Member
    • Authors: Martinius A. W.
      Pages: 453 - 463
      Abstract: The Roda Sandstone Member (Lower Eocene, Tremp-Graus Basin, Spanish Pyrenees) is interpreted as a well-exposed multiscale Gilbert-type delta. It is formed by multiple prograding lobate-shaped sandstone bodies up to 5 km (3 mi) long and 2–3 km (1–2 mi) wide, each constructed by a number of smaller scale (hunderds of meters) lobes that stack in a compensational mode responding to relative base level changes. In general, the proximal part of each lobe is dominated by trough cross stratification, the medial part by impressive clinoforms, and the distal part by more tabular cross stratification. Well-developed tidal bundles occur abundantly in delta lobe-front attached and detached tidal bars; the latter are up to 5 km (3 mi) long and 2 km (1 mi) wide. Cemented layers cover both the individual lobes as well as the lobate-shaped sandstone bodies. The three-dimensional (3-D) architecture of small-scale (decimeter to meter) heterogeneities at lithofacies scale formed by millimeter- to centimeter-thick mud layers in the tidal bars have been studied to better understand hydrocarbon flow through heterolithic tide-dominated successions. The Roda Sandstone has been used as an analog to many oil and gas fields with a particular focus on 3-D lobe geometry, compartmentalization, stacking patterns, and associated correlation concepts.

  • Guadalupe Mountains, West Texas and New Mexico: Key excursions
    • Authors: Kerans, C; Zahm, C, Garcia-Fresca, B, Harris, P.
      Pages: 465 - 474
      Abstract: The carbonate and siliciclastic outcrops of the Guadalupe Mountains in the Permian Basin of West Texas and New Mexico have provided a rich set of basic and advanced conceptual models for geologists across the entire spectrum of experience for carbonate-ramp and steep-rimmed–platform settings as well as the adjacent deep-water siliciclastics not dealt with here. Fundamental questions regarding the scale and continuity of reservoir pay facies, the depositional patterns and profiles of shelf-to-slope clinoforms, the width of facies tracts on ramps and rimmed platforms, the distribution and internal composition of reef complexes, the link between reef development and slope depositional patterns, styles of early and late diagenesis including dolomitization and karstification, and structural patterns can all be addressed in the Guadalupe Mountains exposures.

  • Geometry and evolution of Triassic high-relief, isolated microbial
           platforms in the Dolomites, Italy: The Anisian Latemar and Carnian Sella
           platforms compared
    • Authors: Preto, N; Gianolla, P, Franceschi, M, Gattolin, G, Riva, A.
      Pages: 475 - 483
      Abstract: Exceptional outcrop conditions in the Dolomites of northern Italy allow appreciation of facies variability, depositional geometries, and platform-to-basin relationships at seismic scale that developed during a complex sedimentary evolution. This itinerary focuses on two Triassic microbial carbonate platforms, the Latemar and Sella, providing examples of key concepts that are fundamental for the interpretation of subsurface geologic bodies. By comparing these two microbial platforms, a variability of facies architectures is highlighted. The relatively easy access, the exceptional exposure conditions, and the variety of carbonate platform types that grew in the Triassic of the Dolomites make this region an ideal field geology laboratory for training geologists working in exploration and in addition provide potential outcrop analogs of subsurface carbonate reservoirs.

  • Barremian platform carbonates from the eastern Vercors Massif, France:
           Organization of depositional geometries
    • Authors: Arnaud, H; Arnaud-Vanneau, A, Godet, A, Adatte, T, Massonnat, G.
      Pages: 485 - 493
      Abstract: The Vercors Massif of southern France constitutes a world-class and unique opportunity to visualize depositional geometries and diagenetic transformations of a Barremian–early Aptian (early Cretaceous) carbonate system, the Urgonian platform, at a seismic scale and thus to constrain the three-dimensional continuity and connectivity of reservoir-prone facies deposited during periods of high and low sea level. The integration of detailed outcrop analysis, including diagenetic transformations, with the sequence stratigraphic interpretation of cliff provides opportunities to study the precise relationship between sea level changes and facies distribution, including reservoir-prone examples such as slope and fan deposits, to understand how local tectonics affect accommodation space and effects on sedimentation rates. This integrated stratigraphic framework developed at surface conditions provides an analog for major petroleum systems of the Middle East where platform carbonates are involved, such as the Aptian Shu’aiba or the Cenomanian–Turonian Mishrif Formation.

  • Excursions along the Lennard Shelf Devonian carbonates, Canning Basin,
           Western Australia
    • Authors: Playton, T. E; Kerans, C, Hocking, R. M, Haines, P. W, Adams, E. W, Hurley, N. F, Frost, E. L.
      Pages: 495 - 503
      Abstract: The world-class Middle–Upper Devonian carbonate outcrops of the Lennard Shelf, Canning Basin, Western Australia, offer a unique opportunity to examine reefal carbonate shelf-to-basin evolution in response to multiple coeval extrinsic and intrinsic drivers. Variable styles of carbonate stratigraphic architecture and heterogeneity developed as a function of the interplay between long hierarchical accommodation trends, global biological crises, greenhouse-to-transitional climatic changes, and syndepositional tectonics. The linkage of reservoir-scale, shelf-to-basin carbonate expression to regional, seismic-scale architectures made possible by these pristine exposures allows the generation of conceptual models and predictive relationships that are relevant to steep-sided carbonate hydrocarbon reservoirs and plays. Furthermore, exquisite exposure of syndepositional fracture systems and their association with carbonate facies and position along the depositional profile provide templates for characterization of subsurface nonmatrix flow. In particular, the Lennard Shelf outcrops are excellent analogs for the age-equivalent Canadian Alberta Basin and Carboniferous reservoirs of the Pricaspian Basin in Kazakhstan; however, the breadth of insight contained within the Lennard Shelf outcrop belt is applicable to the greater understanding of reefal carbonate systems in general.

  • Intact seismic-scale platforms and ramps in the Lower to Middle Jurassic
    • Authors: Merino-Tome, O; Della Porta, G, Pierre, A, Kenter, J. A. M, Durlet, C, Verwer, K.
      Pages: 505 - 513
      Abstract: The Jurassic carbonate platforms of the central High Atlas in Morocco are well known for several high-quality outcrops. In the central High Atlas, there are two complementary locations that offer critical lessons for our understanding of Jurassic carbonate system evolution in extensional basins: a Lower Jurassic high-relief, carbonate platform with steep slopes that developed on the footwall of a rotating fault block in an active half-graben (Djebel Bou Dahar [DBD]) and an upper Lower to Middle Jurassic low-angle prograding carbonate ramp rich in ooids (Amellago ramp [AR]). The DBD and AR outcrops provide superbly exposed, structurally intact, and fully accessible platform to basin transects. They provide valuable analogs for depositional geometries at reservoir and seismic scales that are highly relevant for hydrocarbon exploration and production. The DBD serves as an analog for isolated carbonate platforms developed in rift basins (particularly synrift carbonate platforms with a coral calcareous sponge and microbial boundstone facies belt in the upper slope and margin). The AR provides one of the rare examples whereby a large-scale oolitic ramp can be examined in great detail, providing an analog for a range of oolitic reservoirs, mostly Mesozoic.

  • The mid-Cretaceous Natih Formation in Oman: A model for carbonate
           platforms and organic-rich intrashelf basins
    • Authors: Razin, P; Grelaud, C, van Buchem, F.
      Pages: 515 - 522
      Abstract: The Natih Formation in Oman is an exceptionally well–exposed and studied example of a large (>1000 km [621 mi]) epeiric, shallow marine, tropical carbonate platform system with adjacent organic-rich intrashelf basins. It serves as an outcrop analog for many of the mid-Cretaceous giant oil reservoirs as well as for unconventional reservoirs in the Mesozoic of the Arabian plate. A key feature of the Natih Formation is its strict hierarchical stratigraphic organization at multiple orders of depositional sequences (third to fifth), which was first demonstrated in outcrop and subsequently adopted in the seismic and log data sets of the nearby subsurface. It has provided a high-resolution time framework for the robust sequence stratigraphic model that has been developed for an area of 6000 km2 (2317 mi2). Deposited in a calm tectonic setting, the Natih Formation provides an excellent example to demonstrate the principles of carbonate systems’ response to eustatic sea level change and some fundamental differences with siliciclastic systems. Key aspects that are addressed include the influence of the rate of sea level rise on the transition from ramp to platform, the creation of organic-rich intrashelf basins through differential accumulation rates, changing facies models within third-order sequences, and the importance of different platform top channel types. The economic relevance of this case study is the improved prediction of reservoir, seal, and source rock facies distribution and the associated early diagenetic overprint, insights that have been applied in the reservoir modeling of nearby oil fields as well as in exploration-scale studies.

      Abstract: The Upper Jurassic to Eocene carbonate rocks of the Gargano Promontory belong to the Apulia Carbonate Platform (ACP) and provide a spectacular and complete succession of slope and base-of-slope resedimented gravity flow carbonates with preserved reservoir properties and, with its coeval carbonate platform, displaying various tectonostratigraphic architectures. The ACP margin is characterized by an overall aggrading architecture, and different geometric and depositional features. Facies types and sedimentary dynamics of the carbonate slope and gravity deposits can be analyzed with respect to the stratigraphic architecture of the platform-to-basin transition. These outcrops are the only analogs of some important oil reservoirs and plays present in the equivalent slope to basin succession in the Adriatic offshore and elsewhere.

  • Mut Basin, Turkey: Miocene carbonate depositional styles and mixed systems
           in an icehouse setting
    • Authors: Bassant, P; Janson, X, van Buchem, F, Gurbuz, K, Eriş, K.
      Pages: 533 - 541
      Abstract: The Mut Basin in southcentral Turkey contains a rich variety of Cenozoic carbonate deposits that developed on a complex pre-Miocene topography and can be studied in seismic-scale, three-dimensional outcrops. These include open and rimmed carbonate shelves with steep slopes, small isolated platforms, and mixed carbonate–siliciclastic systems showing reciprocal sedimentation. The exceptional preservations of the stratal geometries make it possible to easily link large-scale depositional geometry to depositional facies in a variety of platform types and depositional environments. The Mut Basin provides a better understanding of (1) the control of antecedent topography on carbonate platform development, (2) the influence of icehouse conditions (e.g., high-amplitude, high-frequency sea level fluctuations) on the carbonate system, (3) the link between faunal evolution and the style of carbonate platforms and stratigraphic architecture, (4) lateral and reciprocal carbonate and siliciclastic sedimentation, (5) platform asymmetry and local controls on stratal geometries, and (6) the architecture of steep carbonate margin and associated gravitational collapse deposits. These concepts are directly applicable to time-equivalent Cenozoic carbonate reservoir systems in Southeast Asia, the southern Caribbean, and the eastern Mediterranean.

  • The Sierra del Cuera (Pennsylvanian microbial platform margin) in
           Asturias, north Spain
    • Authors: Della Porta, G; Bahamonde, J. R, Kenter, J. A. M, Verwer, K.
      Pages: 543 - 551
      Abstract: Stratal geometry and lithofacies architecture from carbonate outcrops provide critical information for subsurface prediction of rock types, their spatial distribution, and reservoir quality. Such observations guide and support exploration, appraisal, development, and production strategies. The Pennsylvanian Sierra del Cuera (SDC) carbonate platform outcrop of the Cantabrian Mountains in north Spain offers such information through a seismic-scale cross section of a microbial, unrimmed, and high-relief platform to basin transect, deposited during an icehouse period. The SDC outcrops provide alternative platform margin models to those developed from coral–algal-dominated Neogene carbonate systems and serve as direct analogs for supergiant fields such as Tengiz, Kashagan, and Karachaganak in the Pricaspian Basin of Kazakhstan and potentially for other high-relief platforms with microbial margins. Key features of the SDC platform are (1) a flat-topped platform with a rollover into a steep (30°–40°) and high-relief (600–850 m [1960–2790 ft]) depositional slope and (2) the presence of a microbial boundstone factory from the platform break to nearly 300 m (984 ft) paleowater depth on the slope, stabilized by pervasive marine cementation. The SDC represents a nonactualistic type of carbonate platform margin where the microbial carbonate factory on the upper slope controlled the rate of progradation instead of the platform top–sourced sediment input. These features have significant implications for the interpretation of the evolution and controlling factors of carbonate depositional systems in outcrops and in the subsurface.

  • The Late Permian to Late Triassic Great Bank of Guizhou: An isolated
           carbonate platform in the Nanpanjiang Basin of Guizhou Province, China
    • Authors: Kelley, B. M; Lehrmann, D. J, Yu, M, Minzoni, M, Enos, P, Li, X, Lau, K. V, Payne, J. L.
      Pages: 553 - 562
      Abstract: The Late Permian to Late Triassic Great Bank of Guizhou (GBG) in southwest China is one of the few isolated carbonate platforms in the world that exposes an essentially complete record of initiation, development, and drowning across multiple platform-to-basin transects. The platform is exceptionally exposed in cross section at the surface by a faulted syncline that rotated strata to a dip angle of approximately 65°. Platform development spanned the end-Permian extinction and Triassic recovery that marks the transition from Paleozoic to Mesozoic styles of carbonate sediment production, providing a rare opportunity to assess the impact of global changes in carbonate factory types at a single locality. In addition, regional basin controls such as differential siliciclastic sediment input and varied antecedent topography provided mechanisms for lateral variability in platform morphology that can be investigated along exposures in several geographic sectors. Consequently, the GBG preserves a record of temporal and spatial variability in platform architecture that offers an unparalleled opportunity to investigate the controls on isolated carbonate platform morphology. A better understanding of these mechanisms is critical for improving predictive geologic models in exploration and field-development settings. The GBG also serves as a key outcrop analog for Early Triassic oolite reservoirs in the Middle East and China, the steep microbial-boundstone slopes of Carboniferous platforms in Kazakhstan, and the Permian platforms of Texas and New Mexico.

  • Architecture, growth patterns, and early diagenetic modifications of a
           greenhouse ramp to rimmed shelf system: Danian of the Urbasa-Andia
           plateau, western Pyrenees, North Spain
    • Authors: Baceta, J. I; Wright, V. P, Berreteaga, A, Pujalte, V.
      Pages: 563 - 570
      Abstract: The Danian carbonates exposed in the Urbasa–Andia plateau (western Pyrenees, North Spain) provide the opportunity to examine at different scales the facies types and architecture of a greenhouse ramp to rimmed shelf from the slope to coralgal reefal margin through to the highly restricted evaporitic inner shelf areas, integrated with a range of porosity-forming, early diagenetic phases associated with third-order highstands and lowstands. The detailed nature of the stratal architecture of this greenhouse system provides an understanding of potential reservoir layering, lateral facies and facies cycle changes, and widespread early dolomitization but significantly allows a whole paleokarst macroporosity system related to a third-order lowstand to be accessed, illustrating how eogenetic karstic porosity can vary drastically from margins to shelf interiors. The outcrops serve as potential analogs for fields in Paleocene carbonates in North Africa and the Middle East and also offer valuable depositional and digenetic models for greenhouse platforms of other ages.

  • Huttons Great Unconformity at Siccar Point, Scotland: Where deep time was
           revealed and uniformitarianism conceived
    • Authors: Archer, S. G; Underhill, J. R, Peters, K. E.
      Pages: 571 - 577
      Abstract: The classic angular unconformity at Siccar Point became a landmark location in the history of geology after a boat trip to the site by James Hutton and his colleagues Professor John Playfair and Sir James Hall in 1788. Hutton successfully used the unconformity to support his view that the Earth’s landforms and geological record resulted from uniform natural processes such as sedimentation, uplift, erosion, and renewed sedimentation through deep geologic time. At Siccar Point, gently dipping Devonian fluviatile Old Red Sandstones unconformably onlap vertical Silurian deep-water greywackes (schistus) to produce the most classic of angular unconformities that remains a must-see outcrop for geologists to this day.The relevance of this outcrop for the petroleum geologist is that it provides the opportunity to view an end-member stratal relationship in the continuum of unconformable surfaces (i.e., angular unconformity, disconformity, paraconformity, correlative conformity). The locality also aids the visualization of geometries relevant to unconformity (subcrop) traps and to onlap and pinchout (supracrop)–type traps. Although most Scottish geoscientists will have seen this outcrop in their student days, as a teaching aid to illustrate basic principles, a trip later in life can remind us of the importance of the site in a historical geology context. The location continues to inspire and instills a sense of duty in us, as scholars of the Earth’s formation, to communicate and share the principles of deep time with those who have not had the privilege of an education that included the fundamentals of geology.

  • Fault-related folds in the southern Pyrenees
    • Authors: Munoz J. A.
      Pages: 579 - 587
      Abstract: The fault-related folds observed in the south Pyrenean fold and thrust belt are hybrid structures with elements of detachment folding as well as elements of fault bend and fault propagation folding. Fanning growth strata in all the studied case studies indicate progressive limb rotation during deformation, mainly at their initial stages when fold growing mostly controlled the dispersal of syntectonic sediments as a result of higher uplift rates with respect to sedimentation rates. Break thrusts developed in the fold limb of the initial detachment folds to form fault propagation and fault bend geometries. Inversion folds developed at the rift margins. There the geometry of the folds as well as the brittle deformation patterns are controlled by the inherited fault systems, which are not symmetrical with respect to the fold axis. In the absence of previous structures, brittle patterns developed before or at the initial stages of folding by layer-parallel shortening preserving a symmetrical arrangement with respect to the fold axis.

  • Classic hydrocarbon traps and analog structures in the southern Canadian
    • Authors: Warren, M. J; Cooper, M.
      Pages: 589 - 597
      Abstract: The southern Canadian Rockies is an excellent area in which to examine and discuss compressional hydrocarbon traps for three main reasons: (1) the Foothills host numerous large hydrocarbon fields, many of which were discovered decades ago and continue to produce today, providing a growing subsurface database and documentation of the history of applicable structural models over time; (2) the thrust belt is well exposed and provides many outstanding examples of seismic-scale structures associated with thin-skinned fold-thrust hydrocarbon traps and play types, including surface expression of several of the producing hydrocarbon fields; and (3) many published maps and papers from the Canadian Rockies have contributed significantly over several decades to our evolving understanding of the geometry, evolution, and hydrocarbon prospectivity of thin-skinned fold-thrust belts worldwide.

  • Halokinetic sequences and diapiric structural kinematics in the field:
           Two-day excursion to La Popa Basin, northeastern Mexico
    • Authors: Lawton, T. F; Giles, K. A, Rowan, M. G.
      Pages: 599 - 605
      Abstract: Exposures of salt diapirs and flanking strata in La Popa basin, in the Mexican states of Nuevo León and Coahuila, contain world-class examples of salt–sediment interaction that provided the basis for the concept of halokinetic sequences. The basin also contains one of the first secondary salt welds described in outcrop. The two-day field trip described here provides an easily accessible overview of salt–sediment relations within a short distance of Monterrey, the capital city of Nuevo León. The first day constitutes an introduction to basin stratigraphy, a traverse through halokinetic sequences at El Papalote diapir, and visits to the Cretaceous–Paleogene boundary bed and a salt-cored detachment fold near the town of Hidalgo, north of Monterrey. The second day is a visit to La Popa salt weld, where stops at several parts of the weld permit comparison of different structural styles developed along the weld. The trip begins and ends at the Marriott Courtyard Hotel, near the Monterrey airport.
