Petroleum Geology of Africa: New Themes and Developing by T. J. Arthur, Douglas Scott Macgregor, N. R. Cameron

By T. J. Arthur, Douglas Scott Macgregor, N. R. Cameron

As frontier exploration in Africa strikes into ever-deeper water and new basins, there's an expanding have to mitigate the excessive expenditures by way of decreasing probability. a technique of doing this is often by way of drawing on wisdom from different parts.

The booklet comprises neighborhood papers starting from syntheses on a continental scale to info of the salt tectonics of the West African margin. It additionally addresses the necessity to proceed utilizing applied sciences to their limits by way of together with papers on subject matters as various as gravity interpretation and fluid inclusion stories.

The e-book presents crucial interpreting for these requiring additional perception into the origins of Africa's diversified petroleum platforms, and may be key to geologists and geophysicists desirous about the exploration for and exploitation of oil and gasoline all through Africa. Of specific be aware in is the supplementary CD containing maps of Africa's petroleum basins categorised by means of age of aim reservoir system.

The Geological Society of London

Founded in 1807, the Geological Society of London is the oldest geological society on the planet, and one of many greatest publishers within the Earth sciences.

The Society publishes quite a lot of top of the range peer-reviewed titles for teachers and execs operating within the geosciences, and enjoys an enviable foreign popularity for the standard of its work.

The many components within which we put up in include:

-Petroleum geology
-Tectonics, structural geology and geodynamics
-Stratigraphy, sedimentology and paleontology

Geoscience after IT: a view of the present and future impact of information technology on geoscience

Such a lot geoscientists are conscious of contemporary IT advancements, yet can't spend time on imprecise technicalities. Few have thought of their implications for the technology as an entire. but the knowledge is relocating quick: digital supply of hyperlinked multimedia; criteria to aid interdisciplinary and geographic integration; new versions to symbolize and visualize our thoughts, and keep watch over and deal with our actions; plummeting expenses that strength the speed.

The Chemistry and Technology of Petroleum

Refineries must never in simple terms adapt to evolving environmental rules for cleanser product requirements and processing, but additionally locate how you can meet the expanding call for for petroleum products,particularly for liquid fuels and petrochemical feedstocks. The Chemistry and expertise of Petroleum, Fourth version deals a twenty first century standpoint at the improvement of petroleum refining applied sciences.

We have depicted the extension and thinning of the continental lithosphere as having ended by the Late Barremian (126 Ma) when ocean floor of normal thickness first began to form. Resolving the time at which this critical change happened north of the Walvis Ridge is difficult for three reasons: • The sedimentary rocks of both the rift facies and the overlying steer's-horns or sag facies below the evaporite are non-marine. • The sections are thick and deeply buried. • Well/corehole penetrations have been few.

124 Ma). Rift-fill lacustrine source rocks were also deposited in the southernmost rifts of the Sirt Basin at that time (Gras & Thusu 1998) and in the Central African rifts (Genik et al. 1991), establishing a riftassociated source-rock fairway that extends the length of Africa.
