Guadalupe Mountain - Delaware Basin HGS Field Trip

The Houston Geological Society will run a Guadalupe Mountain – Delaware Basin Field Trip on March 23-26, 2023.

The field trip will study Middle Permian strata, consisting of: 1) Delaware Basin strata composed of Cutoff, Brushy Canyon, Cherry Canyon, and Bell Canyon formations; 2) Ramp margin to inner ramp and shelf margin to inner shelf strata composed of San Andres, Grayburg, Queen, Seven Rivers, Yates, Tansill formations, and Capitan Limestone.

Each field trip attendee will be part of a team. Teams will study each field trip stop and make an interpretation of: 1) depositional environment; 2) lithology; 3) sedimentary structures; 4) porosity-permeability; and 5) reservoir-seal-source rock potential. Each team will report their findings prior to an in-depth overview of each stop. Outcrops will be compared to Permian Basin subsurface reservoirs and associated vertical and lateral seals.

Field trip attendees will have the opportunity to build their own Middle Permian composite-scale sequence stratigraphic cross section, connecting time equivalent strata from Delaware Basin strata up-dip into ramp margin-shelf margin strata and further up-dip into inner ramp-inner shelf strata in the Guadalupe Mountains.


The field trip agenda is:

Day 1. Late afternoon flight to Midland, Texas. Drive to Carlsbad, New Mexico and check into the Stevens Inn.

Day 2. Delaware Basin and shelf margin – reservoir, source rock, and seal lithofacies

Day 3. Guadalupe Mountains. Inner ramp – ramp crest shoal – middle ramp reservoir and inter-reservoir baffle and barrier lithofacies

Day 4. Guadalupe Mountains. Inner shelf up-dip lateral stratigraphic trap lithofacies (seal) and initial inner shelf reservoir lithofacies


Speaker: Robert F. Lindsay, Field Trip Leader

Company: Lindsay Consulting LLC, Midland, TX
