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 Siri Canyon extends for more than 120 km from the Stavanger Platform to the Tail End Graben along the Danish-Norwegian North Sea boundary. Initial formation of the canyon system took place in the Early Paleocene (Danian) and was related to major, submarine sliding in the uppermost chalk section caused by uplift of the Scandinavian hinterlands. The trend of the canyon partly follows salt structures along the southern edge of the Norwegian-Danish Basin (part of the Northern Zechstein Basin). The canyon fill consists of deep-marine, highly glauconitic sandstones interbedded with hemipelagic and turbidite marls and mudstones. As for...
