General awareness of induced seismicity and gas leakage related to energy reservoir exploitation has been on the rise for several years (McGarr, 2002; Davies et al., 2013). This includes events from short-term Huid injection for reservoir simulation (Giardini, 2009; Atkinson, 2016), Long term hydrocarbon extraction (Van Thienen-Visser and...

This research is a legal analysis concerning four scenarios for cross-border carbon dioxide (CO2) transport that could increase the deployment of carbon-capture and storage (CCS) deployment in Europe. The legal analysis categorizes the law into three levels-international, national and local-and considers the four scenarios in light of these...

The taxonomic revision of the dinoflagellate cyst subfamily Wetzelielloideae by Williams et al. (2015) places primary emphasis on the type of archaeopyle, and secondarily on wall ornamentation. Williams et al. (2015) argues that this provides more clarity for taxonomic differentiation within the subfamily of Wetzelielloideae, and adds to the...

In the central part of Hungary, an earthquake with the local magnitude of 4.5 occurred near the town of Oroszlány, on 29 January 2011. The main shock and its more than 200 aftershocks were recorded by a significant number of three-component seismic stations, which enabled us to perform multiple event location on the event cluster. We applied the...

A workflow is presented to determine the detailed, high-resolution pattern of erosion in maturely explored Sedimentary Basins by analysing the sonic log-based interval velocity patterns of nine stratigraphic intervals complemented by a geometrical approach involving the extrapolation of 3-D seismic reflectors. The jointly evaluated results of...

The Mensa and Thunder Horse intraslope minibasins in southcentralMississippi Canyon, northern deep-water Gulf ofMexico, had a linked structural evolution from the Early Cretaceous through the late Miocene. Analysis of the two minibasins illustrates the complexities of deep-water sedimentation and salt tectonics in intraslope minibasins. This...

The petroleum systems of two adjacent Miocene intraslope minibasins in the northern deep-water Gulf of Mexico are modeled to investigate why one of them produces primarily gas but the other produces oil. Specifically, the Mensa field produces gas from a faulted four-way closure that overlies a turtle structure, whereas the adjacent Thunder Horse...

Geothermal energy is an important renewable energy resource, whose share is growing rapidly in the energy mix. Geosciences provide fundamental knowledge on Earth system processes and properties, required for the development of new methods to identify prospective geothermal resources suitable for exploitation. Through robust prediction and...

Thunder Horse and Mensa are two of the largest fields of oil or gas, respectively, in the northern deep-water Gulf of Mexico. The fields are present in adjacent intraslope minibasins, located approximately 12 mi (19 km) apart in Mississippi Canyon. Both fields illustrate important complexities of deep-water sedimentation. Analysis is based on...

The northern deep-waterGulf ofMexico is one of themost active deep-water petroleum provinces in the world. This paper introduces the regional geologic setting for the northern deep-water Gulf of Mexico and briefly discusses the importance of technology in developing the area's resources. Exploration has focused on four major geologic provinces:...

The structural framework and evolution from the Middle Jurassic to the present of the Mississippi Canyon, Atwater Valley, western DeSoto Canyon, and western Lloyd Ridge protraction areas consist of a complex history influenced by basement fabric, multiple stages of salt movement, and gravitational gliding. A detailed tectono-stratigraphic...

The 86 fields and discoveries in the central Mississippi Canyon, Atwater Valley, western DeSoto Canyon, and Lloyd Ridge protraction areas are summarized with production characteristics and representative seismic profiles and wire-line logs. Three trap styles are recognized: four-way closure, three-way closure, and stratigraphic. The reservoirs...

The structural history of the Mississippi Canyon, Atwater Valley, westernDeSoto, and western Lloyd Ridge protraction areas in the northeastern deep-water Gulf of Mexico is of a basin influenced by complex salt tectonics that controlled the formation of intraslope minibasins and sediment distribution. Large volumes of Middle Jurassic...

Brittle basement and sedimentary rocks, in particular if these are underlain by radiogenic crust, are considered a prime target for enhanced geothermal systems (EGS). They are marked by high geothermal gradients, caused by radiogenic heat production, and are well suited to be used for geothermal doublets after hydraulic stimulation. Critical...
