To date, most condensates and gases found in the Hammerfest Basin exist in distal, central basin settings, in traps with tight cap rocks of class 1 traps, whereas low-gas–oil-ratio (GOR) oils occur systematically in proximal basin settings, where cap rocks of class 3 traps prevail.

Explorer Emphasis

 

“I’m tired of talking about women in geosciences.” That’s Susan R. Eaton, president of SR ECO Consultants, Inc., and not to put too fine a point on this, longtime correspondent for the EXPLORER, when asked about being featured in this very “Women in Geosciences” issue.
