This data represents the relative subsurface hydrocarbon exploration potential of sedimentary basins along the British Columbia coast.
The concept of spatial stochastic processes and the techniques of geostatistics and stochastic inversion are presented as a means for evaluating the spatial variability of thermal properties and temperature in sedimentary basins. Data from the Uinta Basin of NE Utah are used to demonstrate the analysis. Bottom hole temperatures from oil and gas wells provide the best opportunity for a spatial analysis because of the large number and wide distribution of data. Errors in bottom hole temperatures are not too large to preclude their use and stochastic inversion provides an optimum method for removing random noise while retaining spatial resolution. Corrected bottom hole temperatures from 235 wells in the Uinta Basin...
The USGS Central Region Energy Team assesses oil and gas resources of the United States. The onshore and State water areas of the United States comprise 71 provinces. Within these provinces, hydrocarbon plays were defined and assessed. Each of these provinces is defined geologically, and most province boundaries are defined by major geologic changes. The province boundaries were drawn on the county lines that most closely followed the natural geologic boundaries.
Oil and Gas Wells Data for the Wyoming Landscape Conservation Initiative (WLCI), Southwestern Wyoming
This feature class was created to assemble oil and gas well information for a comprehensive inventory of energy data pertinent to the Wyoming Landscape Conservation Initiative decision-making process. These data are available as online resources for scientists, resource managers engaged in the Initiative, and other researchers. The GIS data and map services created for this study are available for interactive analysis and/or download at the Energy Geoscience Center WLCI website.
