[4] demonstrated the significance of dispersed liquid hydrocarbons on gas accumulations and divided them into three occurrence states based on paleostructure: accumulated, half-accumulated, and dispersed.
These accumulated liquid hydrocarbons are mainly controlled by paleostructures. Paleouplift is a favorable area for the liquid hydrocarbons to accumulate.
Paleostructure controlled the development of basins and distribution of sedimentary facies, which further influenced the depocenter of oil shale and the center of the prolific zone.
The quality of marine source rocks depends on the abundance of organic matter (OM) supply, and the OM preservation conditions, and these factors are controlled by factors such as paleoclimate, biologic productivity, redox conditions, sedimentation rate, origin of organic matter, and paleostructure. Among them, biologic productivity and redox conditions are considered to be the most noteworthy [1, 2].

Magee Geophysical Service will conduct a gravity survey to assist in the delineation of bedrock surface depth, along with topography and identification of paleostructures underlying AmeriLithium's Jackson Wash property.
The presence of paleostructures growing during deposition may have been responsible for the excellent primary porosity seen in many of the Fms.
