Porosity Isopach and Production

Isopach map of the thickness of porous carbonate in the Bethany Falls Limestone exceeding 8% in Victory Field area showing areas of existing production. Thicker porous intervals of oolite occur in upper part of this regressive limestone closely conforming to the crestal areas of the present-day structure.

3-D Porosity Distribution

3-D view of porosity distribution in the Bethany Falls Limestone in intervals exceeding 17% porosity constructed using Stratamodel. Warmer colors represent higher porosity. Model constructed using layers of equal thickness. High porosity layers pinch out updip.
