Interior Rift Basins

Hardcover (Print)


Rift basins are the foundation of much of the geologic history of the earth, and they are also attractive areas for hydrocarbon accumulations, containing 10% of the world's present reserves. This fifth volume in the World Petroleum Basin collection describes a type rift basin, the Gulf of Suez, and discusses other rift basins from around the world.

Editorial Reviews

One of a series of volumes on world petroleum basins, with each volume being devoted to one major class of basins, as an aid to explorationists in deciding what basins, or parts of basins, show the greatest promise for the most profitable return on investment. Part I discusses the tectonic setting, structural style, stratigraphy, and characteristic hydrocarbon production of a type rift basin--the Gulf of Suez. Three other rift basins are described in Part II--the Devonian Dneiper-Donets and Pripyat basins in Byelarus and Ukraine; the Reconcavo basin in Brazil; and the Albuquerque basin segment of the Rio Grande Rift, New Mexico.
