Arising from the 1994 EAGE Conference in Vienna, this book details the history, status and future of oil and gas exploration and production in the Alpine-Carpathian realm.

Deep exploration in these regions is not as advanced as in shallow simple basins because of the geological complexity of the deformed thrust zones which results inlimited seismic application, high cost drilling and increased risks. The questions remain of how large is the hydrocarbon potential of the very deep plays which may be explored and what is the potential of unconventional hydrocarbons in low permeable very thick gas-saturated sequences.

Exploration at extreme depths is not attractive under today's economic conditions but may provide large gas reserves in the future. Thick developments of sedimentary rocks resulting from deposition or by tectonic accumulation are characteristic in this realm.

At the moment exploration is focused on relatively shallow targets and benefits from the rapid development of geophysics and geological interpretation facilities. In some cases old production areas are achieving new importance by the application of geophysical direct detection methods, discovering missed hydrocarbon accumulation, by horizontal drilling or enhanced recovery. Nevertheless, within the Alpidic realm new exploration targets are to be expected. The realization of this aim is one of the main purposes of this book.
