Completed Study

Mapping of Permian Basin Attributes

Stephen C. Ruppel, principal investigator; Rebecca H. Jones, Cari Breton; assisted by Martin Handzlik

This new project, which is funded by the U.S. Geological Survey, will produce basic data and maps depicting (a) the structure of the Precambrian basement and (b) geothermal gradients in the Permian Basin. The data will incorporated into a larger study of the Permian Basin currently being funded by DOE and oil and gas operators. The purpose of both projects is to collect, integrate and distribute available geological data in readily accessible and useable formats.
