Cover: The graph shows recovery efficiency as % OOIP as a function of time in days for a pore voidage replacement waterflood with different reservoir architecture types. Note that the recovery ranges from <10% to >55%. The graph is based on modelling results in the paper by Larue and Hovadik on pp 337-366 of this issue. In this paper it is shown that, for a series of reservoir models using similar rock and fluid property distributions, reservoir architecture does not strongly influence recovery unless connectivity or reservoir tortuosity are affected.

International events

Cover: Main photo shows coastal outcrop of Middle-Upper Eocene deep-marine channelized sandstones in the Brito Formation at Punta Pie del Gigante, SW Nicaragua (photo courtsesy I. Struss). Analogous deep-marine sandstones in the subsurface are thought to have reservoir potential. Inset shows grey to black organic-rich shales, erosively overlain by turbiditic sandstones, in the Brito Formation near San Juan del Sur (photo courtesy of the Instituto Nicaraguense de Energia). Struss et al. report on the petroleum system in the Sandino Basin, on- and offshore western Nicaragua, on pp. 221-244 of this issue.

Geochemical characterization of potential Jurassic / Cretaceous source rocks in the Shushan Basin, Northern Western Desert, Egypt
A. S. Alsharhan (UAE Univesity) and E. A. Abd El-Gawad view abstract

International events

Cover: Aerial view of Apache's Qasr field, a Jurassic discovery made in 2003 in the Shushan Basin, Western Desert, Egypt. Gas-condensates here are believed to be sourced by Jurassic Safa Formation shales and coals, and the reservoir is a thick package of Jurassic braided fluvial deposits. Jurassic-Cretaceous source rocks in the Shushan Basin are the subject of the paper by Alsharhan and Abd El-Gawad on pp. 191-212 of this issue. Photo: courtesy Apache Egypt Companies.

Cover: Bathymetric and topographic imagery of the western, convergent South American margin. The Oligocene to Recent Progreso Basin, a forearc depression of pull-apart origin, hosts Neogene reservoirs of commercial importance. These reservoirs are the subject of the paper by Deckelman et al. on pp. 43-60 of this issue. Imagery prepared by Khalid Soofi and Debbie Hall of ConocoPhillips Company.
