Glaciogenic Reservoirs and Hydrocarbon Systems

Edited by M. Huuse, J. Redfern, D.P. Le Heron, R.J. Dixon, A. Moscariello and J. Craig

 

Glaciogenic reservoirs and hydrocarbon systems occur intermittently throughout the stratigraphic record, with particular prominence in Neoproterozoic, Late Ordovician, Permo-Carboniferous and Late Cenozoic strata. Recent interest in glaciogenic successions has been fuelled by hydrocarbon discoveries in ancient glaciogenic reservoirs in North Africa, the Middle East, Australia and South America. Glaciogenic deposits of Pleistocene age are noteworthy for their content of groundwater onshore and potentially prospective and/or hazardous gas accumulations offshore. The abundant imprints of Pleistocene glaciations in both hemispheres can be used to reconstruct complex histories of repeated ice cover and retreat, and glacier-bed interactions, thus informing our view on the dynamics of older ice caps and predictions of future glaciations. This volume aims to provide a better understanding of glaciogenic processes, their stratigraphic record and reservoir characteristics of glaciogenic deposits. The book comprises three overview papers and 16 original case studies of Neoproterozoic to Pleistocene successions on six continents and will be of interest to sedimentologists, glaciologists, geophysicists, hydrologists and petroleum geologists alike.
