  • Field examination of a low angle thrust fault which strikes essentially east-west at the principal outcrop reveals overthrusting of diotire onto late Pliocene-early Pleistocene fanglomerates. As is typical with the orientation of the trace trend of the fault tracer is east-northeast-west-southwest with a south-southeastward dip. This implies general northwest-southeast compression in the late Cenozoic which is contrary to the generally accepted tectonic regime for this area. Four distinct periods of movement on the fault can be distinguished from the outcrop with a minimum throw of 56.4 m. The broad structural fabric in this area has a dramatically different trend thanmore » either that found in the northeast portion of the Mojave block or in the Basin and Range block immediately to the north. It is possible that the compressional features in this area and the different orientation of mesoscale structures are reflections of the fact that compensation is being made in the crust for differential motions between Mojave and Basin and Range microplates.« less
  • The Anschutz Ranch East field is the largest hydrocarbon accumulation discovered to date in the Western Overthrust Belt. Analyses of reservoir fluid samples from the discovery well indicated that the fluid is a rich gas condensate with liquid dropout under reservoir conditions as high as 40 percent of the hydrocarbon pore volume. The proximity of the fluid dew point pressure to the original reservoir pressure dictated that a plan-of-depletion be established very early in the life of the field to avoid reservoir damage and the potential loss of significant liquid reserves. This requirement was further amplified by the fact thatmore » some of the depletion alternatives involved major front-end monetary commitments and long lead times for implementation. Using preliminary reservoir data together with compositional simulators, various depletion alternatives ranging from primary depletion to full pressure maintenance were evaluated. Variables examined in the study included such factors as type of injection fluid and injection-production well configuration. Full pressure maintenance using nitrogen preceded by a hydrocarbon-nitrogen gas buffer in an inverted nine-spot pattern was selected as the most attractive depletion method. This plan was approved by the working interest owners and state regulatory agencies and is currently being implemented.« less
