    Abstract

    Genesis Field, which lies in the Green Canyon area of the Gulf of Mexico at a water depth of 790 m, consists of a series of unconsolidated Pleistocene/Pliocene-aged turbidite sands, dipping up against a salt-cored ridge. Since first oil in 1999, the field has been under primary production, and, although there is a moderate natural water drive in parts of the field, much of it has undergone significant compaction resulting from pressure depletion. The compaction has had severe economic ramifications, as recently several wells have been lost due to compaction-related shear failure. © 2007 Society of Exploration Geophysicists.
