AAPG Memoir 117 is the first international book dedicated to the petroleum geology and exploration potential of Peru and Bolivia. The geological evolution of the sedimentary basins of the sub-Andean and forearc regions of Peru and Bolivia was, to a large extent, controlled by the development of the South American margin of western Gondwana, setting up a favorable environment to the deposition of a variety of source rocks and reservoirs. Uplift of the Andean Cordillera during the Cenozoic generated a diversity of structural styles controlled by the mechanical stratigraphy of the thick sedimentary sequences and the influences of pre-existing structures and older basement fabrics.

Exploration activities in Peru and Bolivia have proven the existence of large gas fields with proven reserves greater than 10 TCF. However, a large number of prospects, mainly related to undrilled structures or deep targets, together with several frontier basins with exploration potential, make Peru and Bolivia very attractive for exploration.

The 23 multidisciplinary papers of this volume cover a wide range of geological and geophysical topics, from tectonic evolution, geochemistry and petroleum systems, fold and thrust belt structural analysis, stratigraphy and sedimentology, potential methods, to oil and gas exploration potential and new plays as well as recent discoveries. This Memoir is critical for exploration geoscientists in the petroleum industry, research institutions, and academia in order to understand the diverse petroleum systems, the tectonic and geologic evolution of sedimentary basins, and the develoopment of hydrocaron fields in these regions of South America.
