The Nature and Occurrence of Geopressured Resource Areas in the State Of California, USA

Basic Information
Author: Robertson-Tait, A., and Sanyal, S.K.
Description:The publicly available database on oil and gas fields in California provides a significant and consistent source of information which can be used to evaluate geopressure. A total of 410 pools have pressure gradients exceeding 0.45 psi/foot; these are considered to be potentially geopressured. At least 70 of these have pressures distinctly higher than predicted by the regional hydrostatic gradient, and 8 pools are super pressured.
