Bouguer Gravity & Lineaments

A regional evaluation of bouguer gravity and lineaments presents positive support for the "hydrocarbon kitchen" and likelihood of fractures across both the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale and Austin Chalk plays.  A large gravity low that branches off of the Wiggins Arch exists in the heart of "higher resistivity" area of the TMS Play.  Lineament clusters exist in the mid-dip region of the "higher resistivity" area and in great frequency in the western half of the play in Vernon and Rapides Parishes.

  1. Kirk,
    Interesting post. Has anyone done a study of magnetism across and along the trend? That might be interesting to see how it correlates with the production from chalk and TMS.
