Participants will visit outcrop exposures of the Bluejacket Sandstone (Bartlesville equivalent) and middle Boggy sandstones (Red Fork equivalent) from the Lake Eufaula region to the Pryor– Claremore area of Oklahoma. Observations made at outcrop are related to reservoir-scale correlation and reservoir quality distribution in the nearby subsurface stratigraphic intervals, which have been significant petroleum producing intervals in the Mid-Continent region.
