Book description

The Gulf of Mexico Basin is one of the most prolific hydrocarbon-producing basins in the world, with an estimated endowment of 200 billion barrels of oil equivalent. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the basin, spanning the US, Mexico and Cuba. Topics covered include conventional and unconventional reservoirs, source rocks and associated tectonics, basin evolution from the Mesozoic to Cenozoic Era, and different regions of the basin from mature onshore fields to deep-water subsalt plays. Cores, well logs and seismic lines are all discussed providing local, regional and basin-scale insights. The scientific implications of seminal events in the basin's history are also covered, including sedimentary effects of the Chicxulub Impact. Containing over 200 color illustrations and 50 stratigraphic cross-sections and paleogeographic maps, this is an invaluable resource for petroleum industry professionals, as well as graduate students and researchers interested in basin analysis, sedimentology, stratigraphy, tectonics and petroleum geology.

Reviews

'The clarity of the writing, the inclusion of boxes that explain modes of interpretation, and the quality and number of figures (half of them rendered in beautiful colors) contribute significantly to supporting a unique narrative that considers both the small- and big-picture concepts associated with the dynamic paleogeography of this large geographic region. The accompanying scholarly apparatus, including a glossary of terms and a reference section comprising over 800 citations, cannot fail to impress. There is no doubt that this in-depth compilation will remain the essential reference for geologists and petroleum engineers studying and working in the Gulf of Mexico region for decades to come.’
