TRIP ABSTRACT & ITINERARY:

            Precambrian through Devonian strata exposed in the Franklin, Organ, and Sacramento Mountains are nearly identical in thickness and lithology to the equivalent subsurface interval in the Permian Basin.  WTGS’s off-cycle field trip for Spring 2021 will visit these areas, each of which provides unique insights to deep saltwater disposal zones, conventional reservoirs, and unconventional target zones.  Over three days we will investigate this section, which covers over 100 million years of time, and the major bounding unconformities, several of which represent a more than 10-million-year time gap each. 

This field trip is limited to 15 participants so sign up soon! Please call the office 432.683.1573 or email to reserve your spot.
