Deepwater Research Program

Key technology gaps we are working to address:

  1. Regional: Prediction of sand distribution - identification of sand fairways and architecture (channels vs. sheets)
  2. Field Scale: Prediction of reservoir quality - there is a large range in reservoir quality in individual wells. How does depositional facies control reservoir quality?

CoRE researchers are actively studying outcrops of three deepwater systems:

  1. Late Cretaceous Point Loma Formation, California
  2. Paleogene Ainsa Basin, Spain
  3. Miocene Modelo Formation, California
