M100 - Tectonics and Sedimentation: Implications for Petroleum Systems

Edited by Dengliang Gao

 

The influence of tectonics on sedimentation and hydrocarbon accumulation is different among extensional, strike-slip, and contractional structural styles. Addressing the role of different structural styles and syntectonic sedimentation in petroleum systems is essential to assess the hydrocarbon potential of sedimentary basins.

This 18-chapter volume is small enough to focus on the interplay among tectonics, sedimentation, and petroleum systems. Yet it is big enough to cover the diversity of structural styles in important petroliferous sedimentary basins around the globe, including those in west Africa, east Africa, east Brazil, east United States of America, Gulf of Mexico, South China Sea, the Russian Arctic, and the Mediterranean Sea.

The book begins with reviews, followed by case studies, and ends with an overview chapter. The chapter authors are asked to pitch their papers appropriately. Thus, the tone of the book reads more like a coherent, topical volume than a compiled collection of independent papers.
