US Continental Key Geological Horizons

See below for a brief summary on our US Continental Well Database.

  • US Continental Geologic Basement
    • The US Continental Geologic Basement is a set of well-based formation and structure maps, delivered in ArcGIS format for easy implementation into your interpretive process. Isopach and Structure maps also available in PDF format.

 

  • Well-controlled Structure Maps
    • DEM
    • Top of Precambrian
    • Top of Cretaceous
    • Top of Permian
    • Top of Devonian

 

  • Well-controlled Geologic Isopachs
    • Sedimentary Section: DEM to Precambrian Isopach
    • Tertiary Isopach: Surface (DEM) to Top of Cretaceous
    • Mesozoic Isopach: Cretaceous to Top of Permian
    • Upper Paleozoic Isopach: Permian to Devonian
    • Paleozoic Isopach: Permian to Precambrian Basement
    • Lower Paleozoic Isopach: Devonian to Precambrian Basement

 

  • US Continental Well Database
    • The US Continental Well Database is delivered in ArcGIS format for easy implementation into your interpretive process.
    • The wells have been datum corrected to below sea level (bsl) depths and transcribe to Latitude & Longitude positions. All formations with corresponding depths were preserved.
    • IGC continues to search, organize and catalog wells by basement types, depth & formation. We are very selective which wells we maintain in this database. The area covered is the Continental US from East to West coast and from Canadian to Mexican borders. Currently the well database includes nearly a million wells.
