24th Annual Symposium of the Gulf Coast Association of Geological Societies


Exploration of the Plio-Pleistocene in the Gulf of Mexico since 1970 has discovered signifi- cant hydrocarbon reserves. One of the better gas fields to date has been the Block 270 East Cameron Field. Utilization of a coordinated exploitation plan with Schlumberger has allowed Pennzoil as operator, to develop and put on production the Block 270 Field in a minimum time period.
