Bouguer Gravity Maps Identify Regional Basin Structure and Resultant Preferred Directions of Lateral Oil and Gas Migration


Regional structure, and therefore any regional map indicating regional structure, can be used to determine the preferred lateral hydrocarbon migration directions in a basin. Even a quantitatively and qualitatively well controlled regional Bouguer gravity map in many cases will indicate deep structural geometry; its contours may be viewed as regional structural form-lines.
