The subsurface structure and hydrocarbon distribution of the Heidelberg-Sand Hill Graben system have been determined, utilizing 575 electric logs, existing field studies, and proprietary seismic data. This Graben system, located on the eastern side of the Mississippi Salt Basin, extends for about 60 miles in a NNW-SSE direction from Jasper County to Green County, Mississippi. The objectives of this research were threefold. Subsurface faults that comprise the Heidelberg-Sand Hill Graben system were delineated and portrayed on cross sections, structure maps, and isopach maps, providing a regional picture of the structural attitudes and sedimentation histories of the oil-prolific Mesozoic sediments. The structural locations of the known hydrocarbon accumulations in the Heidelberg- Sand Hill producing fields were examined to compare trap styles. The fault-hydrocarbon accumulation realtionships were generalized to develop a model that can serve as an analog for future exploration.
