Geologic Framework for the National Assessment of Carbon Dioxide Storage Resources

Williston Basin, Central Montana Basins, and Montana Thrust Belt Study Areas

USGS Publication: Open-File Report 2012-1024-J
Chapter J - The 2007 Energy Independence and Security Act directs the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to conduct a national assessment of potential geologic storage resources for carbon dioxide (CO2). The methodology used by the USGS for the national CO2 assessment follows that of previous USGS work. This methodology is non-economic and is intended to be used at regional to sub-basinal scales.

Evidence for a palaeo-oil column and alteration of residual oil in a gas-condensate field: Integrated oil inclusion and experimental results

Outside Publication: Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta
In the Phuong Dong gas condensate field, Cuu Long Basin, Vietnam, hydrocarbon inclusions in quartz trapped a variety of petroleum fluids in the gas zone. Based on the attributes of the oil inclusion assemblages (fluorescence colour of the oil, bubble size, presence of bitumen), the presence of a palaeo-oil column is inferred prior to migration of gas into the reservoir. When a palaeo-oil column is displaced by gas, a residual volume fraction of oil remains in pores....

31st Annual Meeting of the Society for Organic Petrology (TSOP)

The 31st Annual Meeting of The Society for Organic Petrology (TSOP) will be held in Sydney, Australia from September 27 to October 3, 2014. This represents the 10th anniversary of the successful and highly acclaimed Sydney meeting held in 2004, and again provides an opportunity to showcase international research on different aspects of organic petrology.
