Recent studies have shown that the loss of primary pores and the development of secondary pores in mudrocks are primarily controlled by burial diagenesis of the mineral matrix and thermal maturation of organic matter (OM). However, the lack of quantitative data on nanometer- to micrometer-scale rock properties has limited the ability to define and predict petrophysical properties and fluid flow in these fine-grained rocks.

The Delaware Basin is the habitat of the fire-scorched Oil Phoenix, which rises from the ashes of a 3-year oil industry meltdown that has savaged companies that have held acreage, operations, and infrastructure in the costly resource plays of Colorado, Texas, Pennsylvania, North Dakota, and more.
