Genise Noel – 104000544 GEOL 320B LAB 4 – Interpreting the Subsurface Reservoir Rock – Middle Bakken Lithology: fractured

dolomitized carbonate-shoal deposit Pressure Gradient: 0.53 psi/ft (abnormally pressured) o Temperature: 240 F TVD: 8500 – 10,500 ft (2593 – 3203m) Vertical Thickness: 8 – 14 ft Porosity: 3 – 9% Permeability: 0.04 mD Source Rock: Upper & Lower Bakken Total Organic Carbon (TOC): 40 wt% Avg: 11%

Hydrocarbon Data Oil Saturation: ~75% o Oil Gravity: 42 API GOR: 500MCFD/bbl Migration Path Description Permeable beds: Intercalation of Middle Bakken between U & L Bakken assisted by natural fracturing of the Bakken formation. Natural Fracturing - due to: • Folding and faulting • Evaporite solution • High fluid pressure • Recurrent movement on basement shear zones • Regional stress with open fracture direction
