Basin Analysis in Petroleum Exploration : A Case Study from the Bekes Basin, Hungary
This volume summarizes, in 16 chapters, the petroleum geology of the Bekes Basin with respect to its geological setting in the Pannonian Basin. The work was accomplished by a joint effort of the Hungarian Oil and Gas Co. and US Geological Survey. In contrast with other books that discuss the geology of Hungary, this volume identifies, in detail, potential source rocks and reservoir rocks, and evaluates the maturation, generation, migration and entrapment of hydrocarbons. The main points are: its summary of the petroleum geology of the Bekes Basin with respect to its structural and sedimentological setting in the Pannonian Basin; the identification of geographic areas, structural trends and stratigraphic zones that remain relatively unexplored; and a summary of "petroleum plays" with an assessment of their recoverable, undiscovered resources of oil and gas. This book is primarily for petroleum geologists interested in oil and gas exploration in Hungary, and earth scientists interested in the geology of the Pannonian Basin.
