Nevada has produced nearly 50 million barrels of oil, but that is just a drop in the bucket compared to the potential buried in the Nevada portion of the Sevier thrust belt that spans the length of the Rocky Mountains and has been prolific in Wyoming and Utah.

In the Rockies we are all looking for a hidden structure that will discover a new big gas field. In 1994, Barrett Resources (now Williams Production Company) made a significant Rocky Mountain gas discovery at Cave Gulch Field, with reserves in excess of 600 BCF.

VG Abstract

The Betic hinterland, in the westernmost Mediterranean, constitutes a unique example of a stack of metamorphic units. Using a three-dimensional model for the crustal structure of the Betics-Rif area this talk will address the role of crustal flow simultaneously to upper-crustal low-angle faulting in the origin and evolution of the topography.

VG Abstract

In comparison with the known boundary conditions that promote salt deformation and flow in sedimentary basins, the processes involved with the mobilization of clay-rich detrital sediments are far less well established. This talk will use seismic examples in different tectonic settings to document the variety of shale geometries that can be formed under brittle and ductile deformations.
