Title: Petroleum Geoscience
Abstract: In this textbook, authors have tried to bridge the gap that often seems to exist between geophysical and geological disciplines and there is also an emphasis on sediment compaction, fluid flow and rock physics. The skills required for a petroleum geologist have changed greatly over the years. Traditionally the main task was to identify reservoir rocks, structures with closure and the proximity of a mature source rock. We are running out of “the easy to find” and “easy to produce” oil and gas, and exploration and production technology is becoming more advanced. It is now possible to produce oil and gas from source rocks (shales) and not only what has migrated into a reservoir rock. This has increased the world’s petroleum reserves very significantly in recent years. In North America, shale gas and shale oil production has increased and has lowered the gas price also internationally.
