Summary

The Assessment Unit is the fundamental unit used in the National Assessment Project for the assessment of undiscovered oil and gas resources. The Assessment Unit is defined within the context of the higher-level Total Petroleum System. The Assessment Unit is shown herein as a geographic boundary interpreted, defined, and mapped by the geologist responsible for the province and incorporates a set of known or postulated oil and (or) gas accumulations sharing similar geologic, geographic, and temporal properties within the Total Petroleum System, such as source rock, timing, migration pathways, trapping mechanism, and hydrocarbon type. The Assessment Unit boundary is defined geologically as the limits of the geologic elements that define [...]

Purpose

The purpose of these files is to define and illustrate the geographic limit and geologic boundaries of the Assessment Units within the defined Total Petroleum Systems, as required for the USGS National Assessment of Oil and Gas Project. The Assessment Units were used as the fundamental units for the assessment of undiscovered oil and gas. The assessment unit boundaries define the combined geologic limits of each Assessment Unit and are described and defined in the text portions of this assessment publication.
