Mesozoic stratigraphy, sedimentary evolution, and petroleum potential of the Jeanne D'Arc Basin, Grand Banks of Newfoundland: M44-89/17E-PDF

"The Jeanne d'Arc Basin, located at the northeastern part of the Grand Banks of Newfoundland, is a Mesozoic failed-rift basin containing in excess of 22 km of sedimentary fill. Despite a period of vigorous exploration activity initiated by the discovery of the giant-class Hibernia oil field in 1979, the lithostratigraphic nomenclature is not yet standard. This has led to a plethora of lithostratigraphies used by various industry groups, government agencies, and academia, a situation that has caused communication problems. A new lithostratigraphic nomenclature is proposed for the Mesozoic rocks older than the Late Cretaceous Dawson Canyon Formation. The tzomenclature consists of 17 formations (14 new), 3 members (new), and 2 markers (new)"--Abstract, p. 1.
