Basin analysis and modeling of the burial, thermal and maturation histories in sedimentary basins.



Basin analysis and modeling of the burial, thermal and maturation histories in sedimentary basins.

Makhous, Monzer and Yu. I. Galushkin.

Editions Technip, [c]2005

380 p.


Makhous, a professional in oil and gas exploration, and Galushkin (Museum of Earth Science, Moscow State University) explain the latest contributions to basin modeling and apply them to continental basins worldwide. Focus is on the one- and two-dimensional modeling of the burial, thermal, and maturation histories of sedimentary basins, with particular attention paid to specific features of basin evolution. A new approach is applied to the fitting procedure for determining the kinetic reaction parameters of hydrocarbon generation. The book is distributed in the US by Enfield.
