It is widely acknowledged that the growth and linkage of a boundary fault affects the evolution of the accompanying sedimentary basin and exerts a strong influence on its sedimentary characteristics. In this study, we attempt to discuss the evolution of a boundary fault and rift basin by using seismic interpretation, incremental fault throw and growth rate–distance (G–d) profile, which are more suitable parameters than the expansion index in rift basins where footwall strata are missing because of erosion or a depositional hiatus.

The Triassic Yanchang Formation contains the main oil-bearing strata in the Ordos Basin, central China. But the sedimentology of the Late Triassic is still under debate, and flood-generated hyperpycnal-flow deposits and their implications for unconventional petroleum development long have been overlooked.

Jimusar sag, which lies in the Junggar Basin, is an important tight oil study area in China. However, the properties and origin of the crude oil and the geochemical characteristics of the tight oil from the Lucaogou Formation have not yet been studied.

The purpose of this paper is to relate diagenetic processes in deeply buried sandstones in the fourth member of the Eocene Shahejie Formation interval, Bohai Bay Basin, China, to pore-fluid flow changes with progressive burial.

The purpose of this study is to understand the hydrocarbon charge history of a tight gas reservoir and to provide a model for further exploration through an integrated study including x-ray micro-computed tomography and scanning electron microscopy imaging, natural gas and light oil geochemistry, and fluid inclusion petrography.

The mechanism for petroleum accumulation in the Qinghuangdao 29 oil field, Bohai Sea, China, is examined by analyzing the gas and fluid composition and conduit architecture and calculating the intensity of boundary faults in order to better understand petroleum exploration on the Shijiutuo uplift.

By one measure, 2016 shaped up to be the worst time for international oil and gas discoveries in years. By another, last year looks like the worst for international oil additions in decades.
