With respect to technically recoverable undiscovered conventional hydrocarbon resources in the San Joaquin Basin Province, the USGS estimated means of trillion cubic feet of gas (TCFG), million barrels of oil (MMBO), and 86 million barrels of total natural gas liquids (MMBNGL) for the five total petroleum systems (exclusive of reserve Cited by: 2. The San Joaquin Basin Province is a petroliferous basin filled with predominantly Late Cretaceous to Pliocene-aged sediments, with organic-rich marine rocks of Late Cretaceous, Eocene, and Miocene age providing the source of most of the oil and gas. Previous geochemical studies have focused on the origin of the oil in the province, but the origin of the natural gas has received little attention. A great variety of proven hydrocarbon plays and trap styles are present in the sedimentary succession of the Netherlands, which starts in the middle Paleozoic and has been deformed by several.

Petroleum Geology plays an important role in today's society. Petroleum Geologists are the men and women who know how to read the story told by the very earth beneath our feet in order to find oil and natural gas, which are vital resources in our lives.

  Upper Jurassic Petroleum System of the Arabian basin During the Late Jurassic, sea level appears to have risen steadily, as evidenced by the continued recession of the continental margin. On the platform, however, carbonate deposition kept pace with and finally superseded the flooding, reestablishing very shallow depositional conditions over. The petroleum system: a new classification scheme based on reservoir qualities Article (PDF Available) in Petroleum Science 16(s1) December with 1, Reads How we measure 'reads'. A petroleum-systems approach (Alvarado, ) examined source rocks, traps, and reservoirs to describe various plays in the basin and areas for future exploration. Buffler () reported that ultimate recovery in the Veracruz Basin, as of Decem , was million barrels of oil, 10 million barrels of condensate, and tcf of gas.
