The Belayim field bottom shows the same plus fault- related sandstones to the east of an antithetic fault. Cross-hatching represents Middle Miocene evaporites.

There is even an indication of a shift of the system in the northern part. These fields are aligned along a paleo- shoreline and consist of barrier bars.

Firstly, the question of whether there actually is any source rock in the area must be answered. Delineation and identification of potential source rocks depends on studies of the local stratigraphy , palaeogeography and sedimentology to determine the likelihood of organic-rich sediments having been deposited in the past.

Geology of petroleum

If the likelihood of there being a source rock is thought to be high, the next matter to address is the state of thermal maturity of the source, and the timing of maturation. This is performed with a combination of geochemical analysis of the source rock to determine the type of kerogens present and their maturation characteristics and basin modelling methods, such as back-stripping , to model the thermal gradient in the sedimentary column.

Basin analysis[ edit ] A full scale basin analysis is usually carried out prior to defining leads and prospects for future drilling. This study tackles the petroleum system and studies source rock presence and quality ; burial history; maturation timing and volumes ; migration and focus; and potential regional seals and major reservoir units that define carrier beds. All these elements are used to investigate where potential hydrocarbons might migrate towards.

Traps and potential leads and prospects are then defined in the area that is likely to have received hydrocarbons. Exploration stage[ edit ] Although a basin analysis is usually part of the first study a company conducts prior to moving into an area for future exploration, it is also sometimes conducted during the exploration phase.

Exploration geology comprises all the activities and studies necessary for finding new hydrocarbon occurrence. Usually seismic or 3D seismic studies are shot, and old exploration data seismic lines, well logs, reports are used to expand upon the new studies.

Sometimes gravity and magnetic studies are conducted, and oil seeps and spills are mapped to find potential areas for hydrocarbon occurrences. As soon as a significant hydrocarbon occurrence is found by an exploration- or wildcat-well the appraisal stage starts.

Appraisal stage[ edit ] The Appraisal stage is used to delineate the extent of the discovery. Hydrocarbon reservoir properties, connectivity, hydrocarbon type and gas-oil and oil-water contacts are determined to calculate potential recoverable volumes.

This is usually done by drilling more appraisal wells around the initial exploration well.Finally, at the bottom model, we note creation of a new package of sediments marked as E created from subsidence below the sea that is deposited on top of C.
