Kela-2 is a giant gas field with a proven reserve of 597 tcf in the Kuqa depression, northern Tarim Basin. Widespread overpressures have been encountered in the Eocene and Cretaceous sandstone reservoirs of the field, with pressure coefficients up to 2.1 from drill-stem tests and well-log data analysis.

Mass-transport events are virtually ubiquitous on the modern continental slope and are also frequent in the stratigraphic record, but the potential they create for stratigraphic trapping within the sea-floor topography is not generally appreciated.

Outcrop analogs are routinely used to constrain models of subsurface fluvial sedimentary architecture built through stochastic modeling or interwell sand-body correlations. Correlability models are analog-based quantitative templates for guiding the well-to-well correlation of sand bodies, whereas indicator variograms used as input to reservoir models can be parameterized from data collected from analogs, using existing empirical relationships.

Statistical data documenting past exploration success and failure can be used to inform the estimate of future chance of success, but this is not appropriate to every situation. Even where appropriate, past frequency is not numerically equivalent to future expectation unless the sample size is very large.

The Tan-Lu fault system in the central Liaodong Bay subbasin, Bohai Bay Basin, has complex structural characteristics, and its tectonism during the Cenozoic is an important factor in oil accumulation. Three-dimensional seismic data were used to document the structural features and evolution of the system.

In response to the question about the amount of funds expended by AAPG for the purpose of simplifying the Association’s bylaws, the Association contracted its parliamentarian to analyze the bylaws, prepare an assessment report of the bylaws and deliver to the Constitution and Bylaws Committee a draft of simplified bylaws for its consideration. This fixed price contract was just under $5,000.

When a delegate writes an article or a letter to the Delegates’ Voice, it has historically been respected as submitted and then published. That practice has served the House of Delegates well since the Delegates’ Voice was first started decades ago.

Papers in this publication describe case studies and workflows that demonstrate applied structural geology, covering a spread of topics including trap definition, fault seal, fold-and-thrust belts, fractured reservoirs, fluid flow and geomechanics. Against a background of evolving ideas, new data types and advancing computational tools, the volume highlights the need for structural geologists to constantly re-evaluate the role they play in solving industrial challenges.

Continental margins and their fossilized analogues are important repositories of natural resources. With increased availability of high quality geological, seismic and potential field data, imaging of these margins and their embedded sedimentary basins and magnetic rocks has reached new levels of refinement and definition, as illustrated by the examples described in this volume.

This volume includes contributions dealing with the origin of the magnetic minerals, and the application of MS as a palaeoenvironmental or palaeoclimatic proxy and also as a tool to provide astronomical calibration in order to improve the chrononology of selected time intervals.
