Petroleum Geology: North-West Europe and Global Perspectives - Proceedings of the 6th Petroleum Geology Conference represents key papers from the latest in a series of conferences that have become a focus for the most important issues in North-West European petroleum geology. As well as detailing the advances made in North-West Europe in the six years since the 5th Conference, this two-volume set also documents many generic advances in petroleum geology and addresses the North-West European experience in a global context. 

The content focuses on the following themes:

• The global resource context
• Exploration histories and future potential
• Better recovery through better reservoir characterization
• Gas renaissance
• Atlantic margins: new insights, regional synthesis and large-scale tectonics
• Deep-water plays and reservoirs
• Understanding petroleum systems
• Unlocking the future with innovative geophysics
• 3D visions
