Review
The narrow connection between petroleum geology and sophisticated simulation methods renders the book interesting for a wide range of geoscientists. Therefore, we recommend this book to all petroleum geologists and geophysicists who are interested in the geology of Northwest Europe sedimentary basins or in extensional tectonic regimes in general. Tectonophysics ...Structure and Tectonic Modelling presents many useful geodynamic modelling case histories and scientific reports on other topics as applied to rift-related sedimentary basins. ...it should be considered an essential acquisition for all companies and research groups working in the North and Barents seas, and in similar geological settings. Bulletin of Canadian Petroleum Geology The book is clearly laid out with explanatory diagrams. Its coverage of this special...

Applied Subsurface Geological Mapping with Structural Methods
Daniel J. Tearpock
0130919489
August 2002
Textbook Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Preface Many textbooks cover numerous geologic subjects; however, since Margaret S. Bishop's classic textbook (1960), and the first edition of this textbook, no complete and detailed book on the subject of subsurface mapping and structural methods has been published. Subsurface geological maps are the most important and widely used vehicle to explore for and develop hydrocarbon reserves. Geologists, geophysicists, and engineers are expected to understand the many aspects of subsurface mapping and to be capable of preparing accurate subsurface maps. Yet, the subject of subsurface mapping is probably the least taught of all petroleum-related subjects. Many colleges and universities do not teach applied subsurface mapping courses, and over the past decade, many company-sponsored training programs have been...

Geostatistics and Petroleum Geology
Michael Edward Hohn
041275780X
January 1998
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
This book introduces the concepts and methods of spatial statistics to geologists and engineers working with oil and gas data, and covers all of the most commonly encountered geostatistical methods for estimation and simulation. Topics include calculation and modeling of semivariograms, linear methods of kriging, cokriging, nonlinear methods such as indicator kriging and disjunctive kriging, and conditional simulation, including sequential indicator simulation, sequential Gaussian simulation, and simulated annealing. Semivariogram models range from very simple to complex. All of the fundamental semivariogram models are illustrated, along with anisotropic models, hole effects, geometric and zonal models, and the mechanics of fitting models. For each geostatistical method treated in detail, the author ...

Inorganic Geochemistry: Applications to Petroleum Geology
Dominic Emery
0632034335
January 1993
Textbook Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Petroleum is not as easy to find as it used to be. In order to locate and develope reserves efficiently, it is vital that geologists and geophysicists understand the geological processes that affect a reservoir rock and the oil that is trapped within it. This book is about how and to what extent, these processes may be understood. The theme of the book is the characterisation of fluids in sedimentary basins, understanding their interaction with each other and with rocks, and the application of this information to finding, developing and producing oil and gas. The first part of the book describes the techniques, and the second part relates real life case histories covering a wide range of applications. Petroleum geology, particularly exploration, involves making the best of incomplete results. It is essentially an...

Review
This is a valuable new book, that fills the need for a thorough review and evaluation of the various techniques used to predict the generation of petroleum. (...) Barker must also be congratulated on the very extensive reference list on which his book is based. (...) In conclusion, this book is highly recommended to anyone who carries out or uses the results of thermal modelling studies. It should be available to active exploration groups, model developers and libraries.

Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
This down-to-earth text gives you an edge in open-hole well log interpretation - access to the insight analysts gain from years of experience. Log analysis is a peculiar blend of art and science, requiring the ability to piece the clues provided by each log into the "big picture." That ability comes with experience and training - the kind of step-by-step training this book provides.

Starting with the fundamentals, the book takes you through the study of individual curves on the log and the development of a complete picture to a study of supplementary curves and advanced methods of analysis. By providing a thorough working knowledge of the factors involved in log interpretation - porosity, permeability, resistivity, etc. - the book helps you better understand the assumptions and limitations of analysis that...
