The Central Graben area was filled with a thick pile of sediments during the Middle Miocene - Quaternary, corresponding to a period of 15 Ma. As hydrocarbon expulsion from the most prolific source rock, the Upper Jurassic Bo Member, was initiated only 20 Ma BP and still occurs today, the Middle Miocene - Quaternary evolution is important. In the Middle Miocene, the Central Graben area was covered by a sea with water depth of 500–700 m. During the Late Miocene (Tortonian), the basin was successively filled by prograding slope and deltaic sediments from the northeast. The progradational infill resulted...

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.
