Stratigraphy and petroleum potential of the upper Three Forks Formation, North Dakota, Williston Basin, USA
The Three Forks Formation is an important hydrocarbon reservoir in the Williston Basin, North Dakota. High production rates associated with new drilling and completion techniques has created interest in this formation. Core data have increased an understanding of depositional environments, facies distribution, and other parameters that impact reservoir quality. Six cores were described in detail and additional 23 wells were evaluated to propose a depositional model for the Three Forks Formation. The upper Devonian Three Forks Formation was deposited on a shallow and extensive epeiric platform. ...
