Contents of Vol. 40, 2017

Vol. 40, no. 4, October 2017

• Porosity and permeability variations in a tight gas sandstone reservoir analogue, Westphalian D, Lower Saxony Basin, NW Germany: influence of depositional setting and diagenesis
I. Becker (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany), P. Wüstefeld, B. Koehrer, M. Felder and C. Hilgers view abstract

• Tectonostratigraphic analysis of the Upper Cambrian – Devonian sedimentary succession in the central Darling Basin, SE Australia: An integrated interpretation of seismic, gravity and well data
M. Kh. Khalifa (University of Zawia, Libya), K J. Mills and Kh. M. Al-Kahtany view abstract

M. Vatandoust (University of Isfahan) and A. Farzipour Saein view abstract

• Index

• International Events

• The cover photograph shows an aerial view along the axis of the Soltan anticline in the Zagros foldbelt (Lurestan, SW Iran: track at bottom right for scale). Outcropping at the surface are carbonates of the Oligocene – Miocene Asmari Formation, a reservoir unit at giant and super-giant oilfields which produce from Zagros fold structures. At these structures, fracturing in the Asmari Formation enhances its reservoir properties and changes in the intensity of fracturing can be related to changes in the curvature of the fold. The paper by Vatandoust and Farzipour Saein on pp. 413-426 of this issue investigates fold-related fracturing of the Asmari Formation at the Aghajari anticline in the Dezful Embayment.

Vol. 40, no. 3, July 2017

• A combined deterministic-probabilistic method of estimating undiscovered hydrocarbon resources
D. G. Quirk (Manx Geological Survey/ Manchester University), M. J. Howe and S. G. Archer view abstract

• Are shoal reservoirs discrete bodies? A coquina shoal outcrop analogue from the Mid Triassic Upper Muschelkalk, SW Germany
A. Petrovic and T. Aigner (University of Tuebingen, Germany) view abstract

• Burial history and thermal maturity evolution of the Termit Basin, Niger
M. Harouna (Université Abdou Moumouni, Niamey, Niger), J. D. Pigott and R. P. Philp view abstract

• Organic geochemistry of the Lower Silurian Tanezzuft Formation and biomarker characteristics of crude oils from the Ghadames Basin, Libya
W. Sh. El Diasty (Mansoura University, Egypt), S. Y. El Beialy, F. I. Fadeel, K. E. Peters, and D. J. Batten view abstract

• Characterization and DFN modelling of the fracture network in a Mesozoic karst reservoir: Gomba oilfield, Paleogene Basin, Central Hungary
M. Bauer and T. M. Tóth (University of Szeged, Hungary) view abstract

• International Events

• Cover photograph shows two bioclast-rich intervals separated by a claystone-dominated interval in the Mid-Triassic Quaderkalk Formation exposed in a quarry wall near the city of Würzburg in SW Germany. The superimposed logs show the cyclicity and 1-D facies stacking pattern, and (to the left) the gamma profile. The Quaderkalk Formation represents an outcrop analogue for sub-seismic scale carbonate ramp reservoirs, and is the subject of the paper by Petrovic and Aigner on pp. 249-275 of this issue.

Vol. 40, no. 2, April 2017

• Geochemical characteristics of the Skrugard oil discovery, Barents Sea, Arctic Norway: a "palaeo-biodegraded - gas reactivated" hydrocarbon accumulation
Z. Matapour and D. A. Karlsen (Oslo University) view abstract

• Composition of diamondoids in oil samples from the Alpine Foreland Basin, Austria: potential as indices of source rock facies, maturity and biodegradation
L. Pytlak (Montanuniversität Leoben), A. Kowalski, D. Gross and R. F. Sachsenhofer view abstract

• Hydrocarbon generation potential and depositional environment of shales in the Cretaceous Napo Formation, eastern Oriente Basin, Ecuador
Xiao-Fa Yang (PetroChina, Beijing), Yin-Fu Xie, Zhi-Wei Zhang, Zhong-Zhen Ma, Yu-Bing Zhou, Ya-Ming Liu, Dan-Dan Wang and Yong-Bin Zhao
view abstract

• Geochemistry and origin of Upper Cretaceous oils from the Termit Basin, Niger
Bang Liu (PetroChina, Beijing), Guangya Zhang, Fengjun Mao, Jiguo Liu and Mingsheng Lü view abstract

• International Events

• Cover photographs show (left) a core sample of an Eocene fine-grained sandstone (reservoir rock), and (right) core boxes containing Oligocene organic-rich marls (source rocks), both from the Austrian part of the Alpine Foreland Basin. The upper part of the sandstone has greater permeability compared to the more highly-cemented part below. The geochemical characterization of oils from this basin is the subject of the paper by Pytlak et al. on pp. 153-171 of this issue. Photos by Lukasz Pytlak.

T. B. Abay (University of Oslo), D. A. Karlsen, B. Lerch, S. Olaussen, J. H. Pedersen and K. Backer-Owe view abstract

• Organic geochemistry of oil and natural gas in the West Dikirnis and El-Tamad fields, onshore Nile Delta, Egypt: interpretation of potential source rocks
M. Leila (University of Geneva) and A. Moscariello view abstract

• Variations in petrophysical properties of Upper Palaeozoic mixed carbonate and non-carbonate deposits, Spitsbergen, Svalbard Archipelago

• International Events

• Cover photograph shows Zeppelinfjellet, a mountain (556 m) near the Ny Ålesund research station on the western coast of Spitsbergen, Arctic Norway. The mountain is composed of folded and faulted Late Palaeozoic sedimentary rocks (mixed carbonates and non-carbonates) belonging to the Gipsdalen and Tempelfjorden Groups, the subject of the paper by Jafarian et al. on pp. 59-83 of this issue.
