Add a review


The South Atlantic petroleum province contains 4.3% of the world’s discovered oil reserves and 2.4% of the world’s discovered gas reserves. It contains a wide range of source rocks, reservoirs and trap types. There is a current sharp rise in reserve additions after technology has allowed for deepwater exploration. This book provides an overview of the geology for an area, which has only a fragmentary English language literature base. Special FeaturesIncludes a CD Rom of a tectonic features map, which is presented on an early drift reconstruction, together with maps for Brazil and a bibliography. Readership Petroleum geologists, exploration geochemists and biostratigraphers
