Leaves in turbidite sands: The main source of oil and gas in the deep-water Kutei Basin, Indonesia: Reply

We are glad that Shanmugan has taken time to read and think about our recent article in the AAPG Bulletin. However, the discussion that he has written seems more oriented toward presenting his own sedimentologic ideas than debating whether leaves… Read moreLeaves in turbidite sands: The main source of oil and gas in the deep-water Kutei Basin, Indonesia: Reply

Characterizing the shale gas resource potential of Devonian-Mississippian strata in the Western Canada sedimentary basin: Application of an integrated formation evaluation

Devonian-Mississippian strata in the northwestern region of the Western Canada sedimentary basin (WCSB) were investigated for shale gas potential. In the subsurface, thermally mature strata of the Besa River, Horn River, Muskwa, and Fort Simpson formations attain thicknesses of more… Read moreCharacterizing the shale gas resource potential of Devonian-Mississippian strata in the Western Canada sedimentary basin: Application of an integrated formation evaluation

Impacts of volumetric strain on CO2 sequestration in coals and enhanced CH4 recovery

Sequestration of CO2 into deep, unminable coal seams is an attractive option to reduce atmospheric emissions. However, coal seams commonly have low initial permeability, and CO2 adsorption causes the coal matrix to swell, which further reduces the permeability and may… Read moreImpacts of volumetric strain on CO2 sequestration in coals and enhanced CH4 recovery

Regional overview of deep sedimentary thermal gradients of the geopressured zone of the Texas-Louisiana continental shelf

Nearly 600 bottom-hole temperature data from the northern continental shelf of the Gulf of Mexico, each corrected for drilling disturbance, yielded a regional map of geothermal gradient down to approximately 6 km (3.7 mi) sub-sea floor. Two geographic trends can… Read moreRegional overview of deep sedimentary thermal gradients of the geopressured zone of the Texas-Louisiana continental shelf

Three-dimensional geologic imaging and tectonic control on stratigraphic architecture:Upper Cretaceous of the Tremp Basin(south-central Pyrenees,Spain)

In the Tremp Basin area(south Pyrenean foreland,Spain),the Campanian-Maastrichtian Orcau-Vell and Santa Engracia deposi-tional sequences onlap the western termination of the Sant Corneli anticline.The precise mapping of the different systems tracts belonging to these depositional sequences,their spatial arrangement,and the structural control… Read moreThree-dimensional geologic imaging and tectonic control on stratigraphic architecture:Upper Cretaceous of the Tremp Basin(south-central Pyrenees,Spain)

New insights into the volume and pressure changes during the thermal cracking of oil to gas in reservoirs:Implications for the in-situ accumulation of gas cracked from oils

Previous pressure-volume calculations during oil cracking to gas,based on the conventional model that presupposes oil cracking to be completed by approximately 150°C,underestimate the potential for gas accumulation in petroleum reservoirs.In this article,a compositional kinetic model of gas generation from oil… Read moreNew insights into the volume and pressure changes during the thermal cracking of oil to gas in reservoirs:Implications for the in-situ accumulation of gas cracked from oils

Petroleum generation and migration in the Ghadames Basin, north Africa: A two-dimensional basin-modeling study

The Ghadames Basin contains important oil- and gas-producing reservoirs distributed across Algeria, Tunisia, and Libya. Regional two-dimensional (2-D) modeling, using data from more than 30 wells, has been undertaken to assess the timing and distribution of hydrocarbon generation in the… Read morePetroleum generation and migration in the Ghadames Basin, north Africa: A two-dimensional basin-modeling study
