Depositional history and stratigraphic evolution of the Upper Wilcox Group and Reklaw Formation, northern Bee County, Texas

Abstract

Report of Investigations No. 284, ‚ÄúDepositional history and stratigraphic evolution of the Upper Wilcox Group and Reklaw Formation, northern Bee County, Texas is a detailed study of the upper Wilcox and Reklaw stratigraphic succession in a 190-mi2 (~490-km2) area along the upper Wilcox shelf margin in northern Bee County, Texas.  By interpreting and mapping 19 high-frequency, fourth-order regressive-transgressive sequences, it demonstrates that the upper Wilcox to Reklaw succession contains greater variability in depositional systems, facies, and reservoir sandstone-body geometry than previously documented.
