Petroleum Geology

hydrocarbonfuels. It refers to the specific set of geological disciplines that are applied to the search for hydrocarbons (oil exploration).

A structural trap, where a fault has juxtaposed a   against an impermeable seal. Oil (shown in red) accumulates against the seal, to the depth of the base of the seal. Any further oil migrating in from the source will escape to the surface and seep.

geochemistry  to quantify the nature of organic-rich rocks which contain the precursors to hydrocarbons, such that the type and quality of expelled hydrocarbon can be assessed. The reservoir is a porous and permeable lithological unit or set of units that holds the hydrocarbon reserves. Analysis of reservoirs at the simplest level requires an assessment of their hydrocarbon generation & expulsion.

hydrocarbons move from source to reservoir and help quantify the source (or kitchen) of hydrocarbons in a particular area.
