In this information-packed volume, the authors present mathematical models and analyses for evaluating, assessing, and describing the petroleum geology of the oil-rich South Caspian Sea Basin, including eastern Azerbaijan and western Turkmenistan. Their mathematical models include descriptions of the development and structure of the surrounding geological systems and traps.

...its ability to encourage the generation of new ideas upon which future exploration strategies can be effectively scrutinized, evaluated, and applied by the global oil and gas industry. -Herman H. Rieke, University of Louisiana at Lafayette "As a result of the decades-long cultural and scientific isolation of the USSR, little English-language literature on the geology of petroleum basins in the former Soviet Union (FSU) is available to Western readers. Therefore the publication of this book describing one of the richest basins in the World, the South Caspian Basin, is welcome." --Journal of Petroleum Geology, July 2002 "This work is refreshing and fundamentally clear in its historical presentation, scientific explanations, and logical organization. It is a must technical source for those who are involved with the exploration and production of the South Caspian Basin hydrocarbons." --Journal of Petroleum Science and Engineering
