    Third International Williston Basin Symposium. pages, , x".Seller Rating: % positive. The Williston basin of North Dakota, Montana, South Dakota, and south-central Canada (Manitoba and Saskatchewan) is a major producer of oil and gas, lignite, and potash. Located on the western periphery of the Phanerozoic North American craton, the Williston basin has undergone only relatively mild tectonic distortion during Phanerozoic time.

    The Williston Basin is one of the most structurally simple basins in the world and home to one of the largest oil discoveries of our time - the Bakken Shale. The basin takes the shape of a saucer or bowl being the deepest near Williston, ND, and thinning at its shallow margins. The maximum thickness of Phanerozoic rocks is 16, ft. This topical report is a compilation of characterizations by different disciplines of the Red River Formation in the southwest portion of the Williston Basin and the oil reservoirs which it contains in an area which straddles the state line between North Dakota and South Dakota. Goals of the report are to increase understanding of the reservoir rocks, oil-in-place, heterogeneity, and .

It is a large intracratonic basin where sedimentation occurred throughout much of the Phanerozoic period and is 15, ft thick at its deepest known point according to a well located in McKenzie County in Western North Dakota. Paleozoic strata consist mainly of.

Williston Basin geology has been responsible for a great deal of economic activity since the 19 th century. While access sometimes has been difficult, the value of these mineral resources has repaid the cost of mining and drilling.

The basin itself contains rocks from every geologic period from the Cambrian to the Tertiary. However, I am going to zone in on the late Devonian to early Mississippian aged units, or in and around the Bakken formation if you will.

Mesozoic Cordilleran and Laramide tectonism broadly structured this Middle Devonian salt basin across western Canada into regional sub-basins eastward of the Rocky Mountain uplands, forming the foreland Alberta Basin and the intracratonic Williston Basin (Holter,Kent and Christopher,Schneider and Grobe,Broughton, ).

The. In terms of geology, Saskatchewan can be divided into two main regions: the Precambrian Shield in the northern third of the province, and the Phanerozoic Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin which underlies the southern two thirds.

Eastern Montana has considerable oil and gas resources, while the uplifted Rocky Mountains in the west, which resulted from the Laramide orogeny and other tectonic events have locations with metal .Extracting relevant information from pyrogram is critical for reconstruction of source rock maturation and hydrocarbon generation histories.

In this study, in order to improve understanding of the Bakken shale source rock, we present a new quantitative kinetic model by inversion of Rock-Eval pyrograms of the Bakken Formation in Williston Basin.
