Abstract

In 2008, the Rocky Mountain Association of Geologists (RMAG) publications committee, under the leadership of Jerry Cuzella, chose to focus on the genreal topic of structural geology as a publication theme. Many earlier RMAG publications pertained to specific oil and gas basins or regions, whereas some relatively recent RMAG publications related to special topics such as, coalbed methane, gas shale, and so forth. Until this collection of articles was compiled, structural geology as a standalone publication topic had not been addressed. In the current climate of deeloping tight “unconventional” reservoirs, and in the face of dinding and producing hydrocarbons from “forgotten” or underdeveloped reservoirs, the role of structural geology is of utmost importance. Geoscientists and engineers are adressing challenges involving fracture-system/stress characterization issues on a daily basis. Geoscientists are unraveling the geologic histories of basins and of individual structures. The editors hope that this collection of papers will provide additional tools for oil and gas scientists and engineers to help in their search for and development of oil and gas resources.
