Overview

The Gulf of Mexico (GOM) is the most prolific oil- and gas-producing basin in the Americas. As explorers push deeper and deeper into the basin, where will they find the next big fields?

This is the first AAPG memoir on the petroleum geology of Mexico, and covers a wide range of topics related to petroleum geochemistry and hydrocarbon origin, migration, and entrapment. The 21 chapters of AAPG Memoir 75 cover the basin from a regional perspective through geologic time and discuss structural geology, sedimentary basins, stratigraphy, and case studies of fields in Mexico. The book provides:

•Integration of onshore-offshore data to help readers understand Mexican petroleum provinces

•New concepts about the paleogeographic evolution of the GOM

•A sequence-stratigraphic framework of the northwestern GOM

•Discussions of gas resources, exploitation, and reservoir performance

This book will be of interest to explorers and managers who want a regional perspective and the detailed information to make better-informed exploration decisions.
