The Pennsylvanian System in the Mid-Continent area consists of five series, from the lowest upward —the Morrowan, Atokan, Desmoinesian, Missourian, and Virgilian. In the Arkoma basin the Pennsylvanian rocks were deposited upon Chesterian rocks without apparent unconformity.   The Permian Basin and southern Midcontinent area is historically important as an area where many important geological concepts have been developed. Wanless and Weller () coined the term cyclothem for the repetitive coal-bearing carbonate-clastic cycles of Pennsylvanian Age that had been observed throughout the by: 4.   The Permian Basin and southern Midcontinent area is historically important as an area where many important geological concepts have been developed.

Modern petroleum geology in the United States had its beginning in the first decade of the 20th Century when the U.S. Geological Survey began mapping the structure of the rocks in and near old fields in order to discover the various types of structural conditions under which oil and gas are trapped.

The Permian Basin in west Texas and adjoining New Mexico (Fig. 1) is the deepest basin of Permian sedimentation in the southern midcontinent, and is an area in which subsurface Permian rocks have been studied extensively because of their immense hydrocarbon reserves.

Abstract. The geologic provinces of Oklahoma are mainly the product of tectonics and attendant sedimentation of Pennsylvanian age. Most boundaries are structural; thus, the provinces map is a generalized tectonic map. The Permian Basin is a large sedimentary basin in the southwestern part of the United basin contains the Mid-Continent Oil Field province. This sedimentary basin is located in western Texas and southeastern New reaches from just south of Lubbock, past Midland and Odessa, south nearly to the Rio Grande River in southern West Central Texas, and extending westward into the.
