Regional aspects of secondary hydrocarbon migration. 5. Hydrocarbon Accumulation, Entrapment and Preservation. Hydrocarbon accumulation and entrapment under hydrostatic conditions. Hydrocarbon accumulation and entrapment under hydrodynamic conditions. Hydrocarbon accumulation and entrapment in hydrodynamic sedimentary basins. Preservation of trapped hydrocarbons. PART 3: BASIN EVALUATION FOR HYDROCARBON EXPLORATION. 6. Application to Basin Evaluation. Hydrodynamic condition, hydrocarbon migration and basin evaluation. Hydrocarbon migration systems analysis. Data base. 7. Qualitative Analysis of Secondary Hydrocarbon Migration Systems. Present-day hydrocarbon migration systems. History of hydrocarbon migration systems. 8. Quantitative Analysis of Secondary Hydrocarbon Migration Systems. Present-day hydrostatic hydrocarbon migration systems. Present-day hydrodynamic conditions. Present-day hydrodynamic hydrocarbon migration systems. History of hydrocarbon migration systems. References. Subject index.


The main intention of this book is to provide geoscientists interested or working in hydrocarbon exploration with a comprehensive understanding of the evolution of hydrocarbon migration systems in sedimentary basins and to give guidelines for its application in basin evaluation. For this purpose, the book fully integrates hydrogeologic and hydrodynamic aspects of the evolution of sedimentary basins with petroleum geologic aspects. It will be of interest to petroleum geologists, hydrogeologists, geochemists and reservoir geologists.
