This third edition of Elements of Petroleum Geology is completely updated and revised to reflect the vast changes in the years since publication of the First Edition. This book is a useful primer for geophysicists, geologists, and petroleum engineers in the oil industry who wish to expand their knowledge beyond their specialized area. It is also an excellent introductory text for a university course in petroleum geoscience.
Elements of Petroleum Geology begins with an account of the physical and chemical properties of petroleum, reviewing methods of petroleum exploration and production. These methods include drilling, geophysical exploration techniques, wireline logging, and subsurface geological mapping. After describing the temperatures and pressures of the subsurface environment and the hydrodynamics of connate fluids, Selley examines the generation and migration of petroleum, reservoir rocks and trapping mechanisms, and the habit of petroleum in sedimentary basins. The book contains an account of the composition and formation of tar sands and oil shales, and concludes with a brief review of prospect risk analysis, reserve estimation, and other economic topics.

In the fifteen years since the highly successful first edition of Elements of Petroleum Geology was written, there have been many advances in the concepts and technology of petroleum geoscience. The second edition has been extensively rewritten and updated to reflect these advances. Nonetheless it has the same objective as the first edition: to serve as an introductory text for university courses in petroleum geoscience, and as a primer for professional petroleum geoscientists and engineers who wish to expand their knowledge base beyond their own specialist area.About the Author:
