Research Interests: The focus of our research is to aid industry in the exploration of the Jurassic Norphlet Formation. Risk elements of the Norphlet play-fairway will be reduced through understanding the diagenetic controls and facies distribution of the Norphlet Formation.

Current Research Projects:

Diagenetic controls of the Norphlet

High Resolution Stratigraphic Forward Modelling of the Norphlet Formation, a Link to Reservoir Presence and Reservoir Quality Risk Reduction in Deepwater Gulf of Mexico
