The secondary exploration target was to prove petroleum in underlying Upper Paleocene
reservoir rocks (Hermod formation).
The Capercaillie well was drilled to a total depth of 3,750 metres and encountered light oil and gas-condensate in Paleocene
and Cretaceous-age reservoirs.
German and New Zealand scientists concluded that the animal in question, whose fossils were found on the South Island, lived 55-60 million years ago, through the Paleocene
penguin was no cute Chilly Willy, according to skeletal remains discovered in New Zealand and discussed Tuesday in the journal Nature Communications.
He was informed that the well was drilled to a total depth of 18,497 feet to test the Eocene and Paleocene
After reviewing the principles of paleoclimatology and paleobiogeography and presenting a chronology, they discuss terrestrial tetrapod horizons in India, the Permian period: the beginnings of Gondwana sedimentation, the Triassic period: pan-Gaean world, the Jurassic period: time of the giants, the Cretaceous period, the Paleocene
period, the Paleocene
-Eocene transition: initial collision with Asia, the making of the Himalayan Mountains and the Tibetan Plateau, the neogene Siwalik group, and the evolution of Indian summer monsoons.
In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa the Paleocene
Hangu Formation is the main coal producing Formation.
Coal is being mined from Bara Formation (Middle Paleocene
age) in the Lakhra Coal field on the crest of Lakhra anticline located 30 km NW of Hyderabad.
The projected measured depth of the well is 1,926 meters, which will target the Dunghan Limestone Formation of Paleocene
Dominance of palygorskite and sepiolite minerals in the Paleocene
to Early Oligocene in Tunisia was reported by many researchers (Chamle, 1989; Adatte et al.
larger benthic foraminifera of the Lockhart Limestone were identified from Western and Central Salt Range, Pakistan.
This ocean which separated the Anatolid platform from Eurasia commenced closure along the north dipping subduction zone in the Late Cretaceous, while the initial collision was probably in the Paleocene
and continued to the Early Eocene .
