Dr. Husinec authors article in Marine and Petroleum Geology

An article written by Dr. Antun Husinec was recently published in the journal Marine and Petroleum Geology. “Sequence stratigraphy of the Red River Formation, Williston Basin, USA: Stratigraphic signature of the Ordovician Katian greenhouse to icehouse transition” documents for the first time the cycle and sequence framework of the Red River Formation, the 2nd major conventional reservoir in the Williston Basin, USA. The main points of the article are how low basin subsidence, coupled with an arid setting and overall cooling trend and glacio-eustasy preceding the end-Ordovician Hirnantian glaciation, generated a shallow-marine, salina-type setting characterized by evaporite-bounded  longer-term sequences composed of relatively few meter-scale cycles (parasequences).
