Modelling and simulation of compacting sedimentary basins

Abstract:

Hydrocarbons are found in rocks within sedimentary basins below the Earth’s surface. Whilst they remain a primary energy source, many hydrocarbon fields are nearing depletion, and new, more advanced exploration and recovery techniques are required to find new reserves and to sustain production. One such technique aims at predicting the evolution of pressure, porosity, and temperature profiles within basins from past to present, to determine whether there is potential for hydrocarbon genera...
