This map was prepared to provide an objective look at the effect of regional geology on oil and gas accumulation. By superimposing a surface oil field map upon a subsurface map showing the major structural features of Texas, a striking illustration of the relationship between structure and accumulation is achieved.

Those structural features that have had a direct impact in producing the environment necessary for the formation of oil pools are described briefly below; major features that have had an indirect effect or possess geological interest only are outlined on the map without further description.
