Author/Editor: Edited by A.G. Doré & B.A. Vining
Petroleum Geology: North-West Europe and Global Perspectives - Proceedings of the 6th Petroleum Geology Conference represents key papers from the latest in a series of conferences that have become a focus for the most important issues in North-West European petroleum geology. As well as detailing the advances made in North-West Europe in the six years since the 5th Conference, this two-volume set also documents many generic advances in petroleum geology and addresses the North-West European experience in a global context.
The content focuses on the following themes:
• The global resource context • Exploration histories and future potential • Better recovery through better reservoir characterization • Gas renaissance • Atlantic margins: new insights, regional synthesis and large-scale tectonics • Deep-water plays and reservoirs • Understanding petroleum systems • Unlocking the future with innovative geophysics • 3D visions
The volumes are accompanied by an interactive DVD, containing links between the text and an extensive selection of core photographs and seismic animations illustrating the many exploration models described. These books provide a significant reference to all geoscientists engaged in exploration and production in North-West Europe, to academics engaged in studying the area and to petroleum geologists interested in generic exploration models.
