The project is located within the Sabinas Basin that serves as depositional site for an approximately 6,000 m thick section of Jurassic to Cretaceous siliciclastic, carbonate, and evaporitic rocks.
Such deeper carbonate reservoirs share similarities with unconventional siliciclastic and shale reservoirs; however the dimension and the distribution of pores within its matrix indicate one order lower magnitude than high quality reservoir (Loucks et al., 2012).
Siccar Point reported that the well encountered a number of thin oil-bearing sandstones within a 34m (112ft) gross package of intra-volcanic siliciclastic sediments.
We studied the genesis of a single shallow-water siliciclastic bed, also called the Volkhov Oil Collector (Yakovleva 1977), in the tectonically stable Ordovician Baltoscandian palaeobasin.
The clustering of samples of the cores II and III in a higher position suggests a mixing of carbonate and siliciclastic source rocks, with a higher siliciclastics contribution than carbonates in the sediments of core III.
The Permian succession of lndus Basin comprised of siliciclastic rocks of Nilawahan group and carbonate-dominated sequence of Zaluch group.
Papers are organized stratigraphically and analyze carbonate-dominated systems, siliciclastic systems, mixed carbonate and siliciclastics, and evaporite systems deposited during the Paleozoic Era in the Michigan Basin.

The excavation resulted in the schematic section represented below, which demonstrates the stratigraphic distribution of the fossils in all layers found of unconsolidated sediments composed of both cave carbonate and siliciclastic material carried into the cave (Figure 2).
