Despite having at least one major river, the Danube, supplying sediment to the Black Sea, the presence of significant deep-water clastic reservoirs has always been viewed as the major exploration risk. Source to sink concepts have been used examine this risk. Reconstruction of plausible paleodrainage scenarios combined with knowledge of the paleogeography, climate and hinterland geology have been used to estimate paleosediment budgets and provide an assessment of reservoir quality in the basin. Analysis of the basin fill, interpreted from extensive seismic coverage calibrated by wells, allows further refinement of the rates of sediment supply. A forward model of...
