Granite Wash, Palo Duro Basin, Texas (08)

Comments on Geologic Parameters

08 Continuity of Top Seal:

Similar to property number 7, top-seal thickness, we did not find a net-salt map of the entire aquitard. Therefore, we used a net-salt map of the San Andres Formation cycle 4 (Presley, 1979) as an example of the continuity of part of the aquitard.
