Regional Geology of the Low-Permeability, Gas-Bearing Cleveland Formation, Western Anadarko Basin, Texas Panhandle: Lithologic and Depositional Facies, Structure, and Sequence Stratigraphy

This research began with an effort to choose a formation for drilling the Stage Field Experiment (SFE) well No. 4, and though this formation was not chosen, investigation continued with the drilling of cooperative wells in the unit. The formation contains an estimated 38 Tcf of gas in place; and development of advanced technology and reservoir understanding will improve gas recovery and lower completion costs.

Summary:
The Upper Pennsylvanian (lower Missourian) Cleveland Formation produces gas from low-permeability (tight) sandstone reservoirs in the western Anadarko Basin of the northeastern Texas Panhandle. These reservoirs had produced more than 412 Bcf of natural gas through the end of 1989. Because of their low permeability, the Cleveland sandstones require acidizing and hydraulic fracture treatment to produce gas at economical rates. Research on these sandstones and other units of similar character in Texas is part of a program to increase the understanding and utilization of gas resources through regional and field-specific geology, formation evaluation, and reservoir engineering. Findings on the regional geology, depositional setting, sequence stratigraphy, and petrology of the Cleveland Formation are summarized. This research began with an effort to choose a formation for drilling the Stage Field Experiment (SFE) well No. 4, and though this formation was not chosen, investigation continued with the drilling of cooperative wells in the unit. The formation contains an estimated 38 Tcf of gas in place; and development of advanced technology and reservoir understanding will improve gas recovery and lower completion costs.
