As the world faces ever-increasing energy demands, we must look to new sources of oil and gas in addition to alternative energy sources. Volcanic reservoirs are one such new source and thus an important exploration area and a hot topic in petroleum exploration. There are issues unique to dealing with volcanic reservoirs, and scientists need to understand the differences between volcanic reservoirs and other major reservoir types to move forward with petroleum exploration and production in these basins. The first of its kind, Volcanic Reservoirs in Petroleum Exploration summarizes today's volcanic reservoir exploration situation in the world, analyzes the current research on the geological features and development characteristics of volcanic reservoirs in China, and presents a series of practical exploration and evaluation techniques based on this research. It describes effective methods for examining volcanic distribution and predicting volcanic reservoirs, providing a framework for systematic studies throughout the world. The first and most complete resource to date on volcanic reservoirs as a source of oil and gas Provides the tools scientists need to conduct hands-on research of volcanic reservoirs Authored by an award-winning petroleum geologist, it introduces exploration and outcome prediction techniques that can be used by scientists in any volcanic region worldwide Includes an entire section dedicated to current trends in volcanic prediction and evaluation technology Offers More than 90 full-color photos illustrate the text in greater detail Features case studies conclude each chapter, helping scientists apply the book's concepts to real-life scenarios
