Petroleum Geology and Reservoir Characterization of the Upper Devonian Gordon Sandstone, JacksonburgStringtown Oil Field, Northwestern West Virginia
This report contains five papers summarizing principal findings of a three-year study of the Jacksonburg-Stringtown field in northwestern West Virginia, funded by the U. S. Department of Energy. This field has produced oil since 1895 from the Upper Devonian Gordon sandstone interval. The Purpose of the study was to spur development of economically attractive technologies for improved reservoir extraction. We set out to study the types and degree of reservoir heterogeneity at several scales, develop numerical techniques to define and predict geologic parameters, and present the results of our work to allow the results to be applied to other fields in the Gordon play as well as fields with similar geological characteristics.
