Abstract

Data presented in Volumes I and II of Structure of Typical American Oil Fields are briefly analyzed and discussed as to their bearing on problems of the source and method of generation of oil, and on the function of circulating water and “carrier beds” in its migration. The writer believes that oil has been generated by dynamic and thermal metamorphism and that, in many cases, it has traveled long distances from its place of origin to its present reservoirs.
