pdf  Petroleum systems of some European sedimentary basins

Petroleum systems of several different basins of Europe are presented: Central Alpine Molasse basin, Carpathian Moldavids Unit, Baltic Syneclise and Timan-Pechora Basin. The forecasting role of petroleum systems in the analysis of petroleum prospectivity of sedimentary basins and evaluation of exploration targets is emphasized.

Keywords: petroleum systems, petroleum basins of Europe, oil and gas potential, petroleum prospectivity, exploration target.
