Upper Pennsylvanian sandstones have been the target in petroleum exploration and production in Kansas and Oklahoma. However, the petrographic characteristics of these sandstones have been rarely reported. A good understanding of the characteristics and depositional environments of those sandstones will help explore the correlative subsurface petroleum reservoirs efficiently.
