A multidisciplinary workflow (Sandtrak®) showcases cross-validation methodologies and integration of different data streams in the Palaeocene-Eocene Wilcox Group, to achieve a high-resolution provenance analysis and reservoir zonation. The techniques utilized include elemental ICP, Raman heavy mineral analysis, QXRD and zircon geochronology, a suite of techniques which allows understanding of sediment provenance variations in a way that is accurate and allows high-resolution changes to be identified. The analysis results of the three wells included in this study show a clear correlatable subdivision of the Wilcox Group.
