Applied Subsurface Geological Mapping, With Structural Methods, 2nd Edition is the practical, up-to-the-minute guide to the use of subsurface interpretation, mapping, and structural techniques in the search for oil and gas resources. Two of the industry's leading consultants present systematic coverage of the field's key principles and newest advances, offering guidance that is valuable for both exploration and development activities, as well as for "detailed" projects in maturely developed areas. Fully updated and expanded, this edition combines extensive information from the published literature with significant material never before published. The authors introduce superior techniques for every major petroleum-related tectonic setting in the world. Coverage includes: bull; bull;A systematic, ten-step philosophy for subsurface interpretation and mapping bull;The latest computer-based contouring concepts and applications bull;Advanced manual and computer-based log correlation bull;Integration of geophysical data into subsurface interpretations and mapping bull;Cross-section construction: structural, stratigraphic, and problem-solving bull;Interpretation and generation of valid fault, structure, and isochore maps bull;New coverage of 3D seismic interpretation, from project setup through documentation bull;Compressional and extensional structures: balancing and interpretation bull;In-depth new coverage of strike-slip faulting and related structures bull;Growth and correlation consistency techniques: expansion indices, Multiple Bischke Plot Analysis, vertical separation versus depth, and more bull;Numerous field examples from around the world Whatever your role in the adventure of finding and developing oil or gas resources-as a geologist, geophysicist, engineer, technologist, manager or investor-the tools presented in this book can make you significantly more effective in your daily technical or decision-oriented activities.
