    We put bounds on this unknown by noting that (1) the depositional temperature of marine clastics in the modern San Pedro Basin of southern California, which is similar to the San Joaquin Basin, is 5 °C (John et al., ), and (2) the modern average surface temperature of the Kern arch is °C (see ).Cited by: @article{osti_, title = {Stratigraphy and depositional environments of Miocene Branch Canyon sandstone in Sierra Madre, Caliente Range, and Sespe Creek areas, California}, author = {Perri, M.L. and Fritsche, A.E.}, abstractNote = {The lower to middle Miocene Branch Canyon formation is a light-gray, medium to thick-bedded, medium to coarse-grained, fossiliferous .

This fault zone is the most notable feature within the basin that is a single strand with local (fault) splays. [10] The fault zone is also marked by low hills, scarps, and ten anticlinal folds in a right-stepping en echelon pattern. [17] It is located in the southwest portion of the basin and is a strike-slip margin.. There are several oil fields that run.

The Coast Ranges Province of central California provides an important record for the timing of convergence of the North American–Pacific plate boundary along the San Andreas fau. The Monterey formation is so thick and extensive, and has so much economic as well as scientific importance, that it constitutes a major element in the geology of California.

The Miocene strata that consist predominantly of highly siliceous rocks have received a number of names in different areas, Author: Richard Behl.

Assessment of Undiscovered Continuous Oil and Gas Resources in the Monterey Formation, San Joaquin Basin Province, California, October DOI: /fs The lithologie successions within the Monterey Formation are broadly similar in the San Joaquin and Santa Maria basins.

Rocks from the San Joaquin Basin, however, contain more terrigenous material because of its proximity to emer- gent Miocene landmasses (GRAHAM et al., ). Proximal basins, by: 4 Source-Rock Geochemistry of the San Joaquin Basin Province, California The most oil-prone facies of the Monterey Formation consists of “mat-laminated lithotype,” which averages about 5.

In the San Joaquin Basin, siliceous mudstones of the upper Monterey Formation (UMF), exhibit a complex range of physical and mechanical heterogeneity at a ˜ne spatial resolution.

The UMF is primarily composed of biogenic silica and clay-rich detritus which may be thinly interbedded. The Miocene Monterey Formation in the central San Joaquin basin of California consists of biogenic siliceous rocks with a significant terrigenous clastic component. The boundary between the central and southern San Joaquin Basin corresponds approximately to the deposition of undifferentiated Temblor Formation (and equivalents) to the north of the bound- ary and the deposition of discrete, interbedded mud and sand of the Temblor Formation (and equivalents) to the south.

The Monterey Formation is an extensive Miocene oil-rich geological sedimentary formation in California, with outcrops of the formation in parts of the California Coast Ranges, Peninsular Ranges, and on some of California's off-shore type locality is near the city of Monterey, California.

The Monterey Formation is the major source-rock for 37 to 38 billion Named for: Monterey, California. The Merced River emerges from a V-shaped gorge through the Sierra Nevada foothills into the San Joaquin Valley at the ghost town of Merced Falls, 30 miles east of Turlock.

From this point it flows west-southwest for a distance of 40 miles, where it joins the northwestward-flowing San Joaquin River.

The USGS recently completed an assessment of the undiscovered hydrocarbon potential of these accumulations. For the assessment, the play concept involves burial of a thick sequence of diatomaceous shale and the consequent.

Oil and gas production from Monterey Formation porcelanite at the Elk Hills field in California's San Joaquin basin occurs from intervals that have quartz-phase mineralogy. However, characteristics differ from chert and porcelanite reservoirs of the coastal California Monterey Formation in that matrix porosity is more typical Cited by: In book: Petroleum systems and geologic assessment of oil and gas in the San Joaquin Basin Province, California, Chapter: Petroleum systems of the San Joaquin Basin — geochemical characteristics.

Middle Tertiary Stratigraphic Sequences of the San Joaquin Basin, California By Cari L. Johnson1 and Stephan A.

On the basis of the analyses of recovery efficiencies and remaining oil-in-place, the USGS estimated that another 4, MMBO may be added to reserves in existing oil by: 2. When the San Joaquin Valley first formed it was an inland sea between two mountain ranges.

This configuration remained even after formation of the San Andreas fault (below). However, as the volcanic cover of the Sierras was eroded off, the resulting sediment was dumped into the. The upper Miocene Stevens Sandstone is a prolific oil producer in the San Joaquin Basin of California.
