Abstract

The term "petroleum system"--barely twenty years old--incorporates a new view of the formation of hydrocarbon accumulations. The concept is based on an orderly sequence of geological phenomena, starting with the genesis of oil or gas, which then migrates and is finally trapped. This sequence of events depends closely on the geodynamics of the sedimentary basin, which is determined by global plate-tectonics.
