Thrustbelts account for around one-fifth of all giant oil fields identified on Earth, and are likely to provide substantial hydrocarbon reserves well into the future. Early oil and gas discoveries were relatively ‘easy’ and made on the basis of prominent structural geometries. Modern exploration and production necessarily incorporate a much broader and more complex array of information. It is now essential to have a detailed understanding of a wide spectrum of factors affecting the evolution of thrustbelts and their constituent resources. Nemčok, Schamel & Gayer aim to provide this by synthesizing information from an incredibly diverse literature base. Compressing the...
