DEEP-SEATED ABIOGENIC ORIGIN OF PETROLEUM: FROM GEOLOGICAL ASSESSMENT TO PHYSICAL THEORY
2010 (English)In: Reviews of geophysics, ISSN 8755-1209, Vol. 47, RG1001- p.Article, review/survey (Refereed) Published
The theory of the abyssal abiogenic origin of petroleum is a significant part of the modern scientific theories dealing with the formation of hydrocarbons. These theories include the identification of natural hydrocarbon systems, the physical processes leading to their terrestrial concentration, and the dynamic processes controlling the migration of that material into geological reservoirs of petroleum. The theory of the abyssal abiogenic origin of petroleum recognizes that natural gas and petroleum are primordial materials of deep origin which have migrated into the Earth's crust. Experimental results and geological investigations presented in this article convincingly confirm the main postulates of the theory and allow us to reexamine the structure, size, and locality distributions of the world's hydrocarbon reserves.
