  One of these Bakken-equivalent formations is the Sappington Formation of western Montana. This regionally 30 ft. to > ft. thick mixed carbonate and fine-grained siliciclastic unit occurs between thick Devonian and Mississippian carbonates and was deposited in the low-accommodation intracratonic Sappington Basin of the Central Montana Trough.

applying a stratigraphic model to the area, an explanation for the sporadic oil distribution will be discerned. This study focuses on the Forest Formation, which is one of the most prolific producing formations both onshore and offshore. The Forest Formation as defined by Hans Kugler () contains four stratigraphic members. The state of Massachusetts and adjacent New York contain a nearly complete section across the northern Appalachians. Massachusetts appears to be broadly composed from rocks related to at least four tectonic plates that were active in the Paleozoic (from west to east: Laurentia, Medial New England, Avalon, Gondwana). Li et al, ,). My study of a deltaic unit within the Ferron Sandstone will add to the understanding of the Cretaceous deltas in the Western Interior Seaway (KWIS) of North America. The outcome of this study will improve the understanding of the regional sequence stratigraphy of the whole formation and will aid in understanding similar units. The Weverton Formation includes quartz metasandstone, metaconglomerate, laminated metasiltstone, and quartzose phyllite. The Harpers Formation is dominated by phyllite and thinly bedded metasandstone with Figure 1. Generalized stratigraphic section of rock formations in the western Blue Ridge anticlinorium, Virginia.

The geology of Massachusetts includes numerous units of volcanic, intrusive igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks formed within the last billion years.

The oldest formations are gneiss rocks in the Berkshires, which were metamorphosed from older rocks during the Proterozoic Grenville orogeny as the proto-North American continent Laurentia collided against proto-South America.
