Abstract

The effects of igneous intrusive activity on petroleum generation and accumulation in the Carboniferous of this area is investigated. Optical, geochemical and organic geochemical techniques are used. The maturity of sediments, unaffected by igneous activity, in relation to petroleum generation under conditions of normal burial are discussed, and work on thermal aureoles associated with igneous intrusions is reviewed. The potential oil and gas reserves are assessed.
