This book describes the main industrial types of economic mineral deposits, the signs and indicators for recognizing them, and the criteria for evaluating them. The work of prospecting and the methods used in searching for deposits, and in exploring them, are treated at by: 6. While the petroleum prospect is first and fundamentally a geologic feature, the ultimate decision whether it justifies drilling depends upon many economic and personal factors along with the geologic factors. These three kinds of factors are useful headings for examining the question of what constitutes a prospect. Principles of Petroleum Development Geology Book Summary: Principles of Petroleum Development Geology examines concepts that are fundamental to the success of tomorrow's petroleum geologists whether they call themselves exploration, development or environmental geologists. Petroleum development geology contains strong aspects of structural geology, reservoir engineering, drilling . This Third Edition of Elements of Petroleum Geology is completely updated and revised to reflect the vast changes in the field since publication of the Second Edition. This book is a usefulprimer for geophysicists, geologists, and petroleum engineers in the oil industry who wish to expand their knowledge beyond their specialized by:
