Petroleum Systems in Western Greece

Course Description:

The fold and thrust belt of the external Hellenides in western Greece comprises sedimentary successions of Mesozoic carbonates and Cenozoic clastics with source and reservoir potential. Faulted anticlinal trap structures associated with the Cenozoic collision of the Apulian (African) and Eurasian plates complete the petroleum system. Thus, the regional geology provides an overview of petroleum systems, demonstrating important aspects of the relationships between tectonics, sea level and stratigraphy.

This field trip can also be delivered in conjunction with our Structural Geology course.
