This book is uniquely structured to reflect the sequential and cyclical processes of exploration, appraisal, development, and production. Chapters dedicated to each of these aspects are further illustrated by case histories drawn from the authors′ experiences. Petroleum Geoscience has a global and geotemporal backdrop, drawing examples and case histories from around the world and from petroleum systems ranging in age from late Precambrian to Pliocene.
In order to show how geoscience is integrated at all levels within the industry, the authors stress throughout the links between geology and geophysics on the one hand, and drilling, reservoir engineering, petrophysics, petroleum engineering, facilities design, and health, safety, and the environment on the other.
