AAPG Memoir 66 Digital Reprint

A compilation of 33 papers directed at examining the process of hydrocarbon migration and its varied near-surface expressions.

This publication is a direct outgrowth of the AAPG Hedberg Research Conference held in April 1994 entitled "Near-Surface Expression of Hydrocarbon Migration." The purpose of this research conference was to gather international experts from industry and academia to critically examine the process of hydrocarbon migration and its varied near-surface expressions. The wide range of manifestations of hydrocarbon migration, hydrocarbon-induced alteration of soils and sediments, migration mechanisms, hydrocarbon flux measurements, sampling and analytical techniques, survey design and interpretation, physical and geological implications of hydrocarbon leakage, and finally, exploration case studies.
