However, conventional exploration and recovery methods do not lend themselves to unconventional sources of hydrocarbons, so you need a thoroughly detailed yet accessible reference to help you understand this newest of exploration methods. Unconventional Petroleum Geology is the first book its kind to collectively identify, catalog, and assess the exploration and recovery potential of the Earths unconventional hydrocarbons. Detailed case studies from around the world act as real-world application templates, helping you make the books concepts immediately practical and useful in the field.Provides you with a detailed assessment of the exploration and recovery potential of the full range of unconventional hydrocarbonsThe logical and intuitive three-part approach of systematically identifying an unconventional hydrocarbon, cataloguing its accumulation features, and assessing its exploration and recovery potential can assist you in immediately implementing this approach in the field-anywhere in the worldMore than 300 illustrations-many in full color-capture the detailed intricacies and associated technological advances in unconventional hydrocarbon exploration and will help you retain key conceptsMore than 20 case studies and examples from around the world conclude each chapter and will aid you in the application of key exploration and recovery techniques
