about this item
Petroleum Geology of Libya, Second Edition, systematically reviews the plate tectonics, structural evolution, stratigraphy, geochemistry, and petroleum systems of Libya, and provides valuable new data on fields, production, and reserves. Since the previous edition published in 2002 there have been numerous developments in Libya, including lifting of sanctions, four EPSA IV licensing rounds (2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007), many new wells, discoveries and field developments, and a change of regime.
As such, a large amount of data has been published on the geology of Libya, but it is scattered through the literature; much of the older data has been superseded, and several of the key publications, especially those published in Libya, are difficult to find.This second edition provides an updated reference incorporating a wealth of new material, particularly on petroleum systems, reserves, oil and gas fields, and play fairways, and incorporates the results of recent academic research along with greater emphasis on the Libyan offshore.
- Presents over 150 full colour illustrations including maps, diagrams and charts, illustrating the key concepts in a clear and illustrative manner
- Authored by two recognized world authorities on geology in Libya, with over 30 years’ experience in Libya between them
- Provides an expanded and updated version of the bestselling previous edition, nicknamed the Explorationist’s Bible
- Lays the foundation for the modern post-sanction exploration age in Libya
