  • Description

    This monograph presents a unique combination of structural and tectonic modelling with applied petroleum geological problems. Focussing on the Norwegian Continental Shelf and neighbouring areas, it includes discussion covering all scales - from development of sedimentary basins, to formation of fractures and joints on a microscale - and from exploration, to the exploitation of hydrocarbons. The book's coverage of structural and tectonic modelling, petroleum geology applications, and the treatment of the Norwegian Continental Shelf should make this book an invaluable resource book for advanced students of structural and tectonic modelling, teachers, and researchers; as well as for geologists and geophysicists in the petroleum industry.

    Reviews

    @qu: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. @source:Tectonophysics @qu:...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. @source:Bulletin of Canadian Petroleum Geology @qu:The book is clearly laid out with explanatory diagrams. Its coverage of this special area and the treatment of the Norwegian Continental Shelf should make this book an invaluable resource book for advanced students of structural and tectonic modelling, teachers and researchers; as well as for geologists and geophysicists in the petroleum industry. @source:Scandinavian Oil-Gas Magazine
