Petroleum Geology: North-West Europe and Global Perspectives—Proceedings of the 6th Petroleum Geology Conference
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 since the 5th Conference, this two-volume set also documents many generic and addresses the European experience in a global context.
The content focuses on the following items:
The global resource context
Exploration histories and future potential
Better recovery through better reservoir characterization
Atlantic margins: new insights, regional synthesis and large-scale tectonics
Deep-water plays and reservoirs
Understanding petroleum systems
Unlocking the future with innovative geophysics
The volumes are accompanied by an extensive selection of core photographs and seismic animations illustrating the many exploration models described. These books provide a significant reference to all geoscientists engaged in exploration and production in North-West Europe, to academic engaged in studying the area and to petroleum geologists interested in generic exploration models.

The Paleocene sedimentary sequences of the Faroe-Shetland Basin, northeast Atlantic, contain abundant palynomorphs (algae, pollen and spores). While one component of the palynoflora, the dinoflagellate cysts, has been used as the basis for biostratigraphical subdivisions of the succession, the terriginous palynoflora is the more abundant. This terriginous component was derived from two primary sources. The first, and most common source has an angiosperm palynoflora dominated by hickory types (Momipites species), which occur in association with plane-types (various Tricolpites species) and Ginkgo. This palynoflora occurs commonly in most Faroe-Shetland Basin wells throughout the early and mid-Paleocene succession. A...
