Title: Deep Gas Potential of Aquitaine Basin, France

Author(s): Howard S. Mullan (2)


The presence of Paleozoic source rocks and various possible reservoirs indicate the possibility of a deep gas play in the Aquitaine basin, France. Subsidence history provided the key input to a modified form of the crustal-stretching model developed by D. P. McKenzie, from which a record of paleotemperatures was calculated. Paleotemperatures, in turn, were used in a theoretical maturation study to determine areas of effective gas generation.
