Abstract

Submarine fans are important to the petroleum industry for their reservoir and source-rock potential. There are a variety of fan types that can be characterized by different fan models. In assessing which Previous HitmodelTop, if any, is appropriate for a particular area or field it is important to evaluate the controls that operate to determine the type of fan developed. Most present-day fans that have been studied are deep-water oceanic; more work is required on modern examples of shallow-water, small-basin fans which are particularly relevant to hydrocarbon exploration.
