The area east of the Gran Sasso Chain in Central Italy has been explored in detail because it holds a hydrocarbon field (Cellino Field), located in the Lower Pliocene foredeep turbidites of the Cellino Formation. Correlation has been made between the hydrocarbon-bearing sedimentary bodies and the same stratigraphic intervals cropping out only few kilometers to the west. The area thus offers a rare example where lithofacies, observed in the field, electrofacies displayed by the electric logs of the wells and seismofacies revealed by seismic survey can be compared. This surface-subsurface integrated study of the Cellino Formation has revealed the presence of different turbiditic facies associations, their related electrical expressions and the possibility of a seismostratigraphic subdivision of the unit. These correlations exemplify the different resolution of these three complementary methods of investigation.
