Summary:Puckett Field produces gas and gas condensate from structurally entrapped reservoirs in porous Ordovician dolomite. Porosity occurs as solution-collapse breccia and intercrystalline porosity interconnected by fracture porosity. Shales appear to form the major seal for trapped hydrocarbons. [R.A.H.]
