Mega-flaps (overturned folded sedimentary basin edges) occur during the formation of salt diapirs and other allochthonous features. Experiments with x-ray tomography of scaled sand-silicone models followed the steps of minibasin evolution and reproduced their geometry and kinematic evolution.

With intensely fractured tight oil sandstones, caliper log, acoustic log, compensated neutron log, density log, dual induction logs, and laterolog 8 show fracture responses to some extent although other properties can also cause similar responses.

Early diagenetic porosity and permeability deterioration has a direct relation with sedimentary dynamics and depositional features. This study explains the role of depositional fabric on early diagenetic processes and their collective effect on petrophysical properties.

Deep-marine, synrift, axial, and transverse depositional systems were studied in the upper Jurassic deep-marine successions of the central North Sea in order to assess the temporal and spatial relationships of sediments and controls on reservoir quality.

The authors describe and characterize structural styles, deformation timing, and thrusting sequence in the southern Junggar fold-and-thrust belt and show how the complex geometric and kinematic evolution of individual fault-related folds impacted petroleum prospectivity.

The Foundation’s generous contributors have consistently worked to make a big impact within geologic education at the collegiate level with two important undergraduate-focused geoscience programs: the L. Austin Weeks Undergraduate Grant Program and the new U.S. Military Veterans Scholarship Program.

Arctic energy is in the news as summer steams into Washington, D.C. Major issues include the midpoint of the two-year U.S. chair of the Arctic Council; public campaigns for and against including the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas in the 2017-22 offshore oil and gas leasing plan; and plans for the United States to build the first heavy icebreaker in 40 years.

Coherence is an iconic attribute available on most interpretation workstations and it helps with the characterization of small and large-scale faults, large structures, fault truncations, buried channels, reef edges and unconformities. There are various algorithms available for coherence computation, each having its advantages and limitations in terms of the quality of coherence imaging of the features of interest and run times associated with them.

The 17 papers in this volume cover topics such as a method to estimate the amount of oil/gas accumulation using the concept of equivalent grain size in seal rock, and oil/gas migration to and spill-point geometry of petroleum traps; two case studies of fault seal assessment applied to normal faults in Tertiary clastic reservoirs in offshore Sarawak and offshore Gulf of Thailand; and physical analog studies of the development of extensional faults.

Divided into two parts with 14 chapters and 5 appendices, the data presented in this volume allows faults to be mapped and correlated with more confidence than before, basin evolution to be examined over a long time period, and some relationships between tectonics and sedimentation to be studied.

Methane clathrate (CH4·5.75H2O) or (4CH4·23H2O), also called methane hydrate, hydromethane, methane ice, fire ice, natural gas hydrate, or gas hydrate, is a solid clathrate compound (more specifically, a clathrate hydrate) in which a large amount of methane is trapped within a crystal structure of water, forming a solid similar to ice. Originally thought to occur only in the outer regions of the Solar System, where temperatures are low and water ice is common, significant deposits of methane clathrate have been found under sediments on the ocean floors of the Earth.
