Is the world running out of hydrocarbons?
Where will we find oil and gas to fuel the twenty-first century?
Are unconventional sources of hydrocarbons waiting to be tapped?
This book addresses these important issues concerning energy needs in this century. The volume is a compilation of expert papers presented at the second Wallace E. Pratt Memorial Conference, Petroleum Provinces of the Twenty-first Century, held at San Diego, California, on January 12-15, 2000. The chapters describe the remaining hydrocarbon potential of most of the major petroleum basins that likely will provide the world's energy in the near future.
