Basin and petroleum system modeling tracks the evolution of a sedimentary basin and its fluids. This article explores the petroleum system concept and describes the types of information required to model the dynamic processes that lead to creation of hydrocarbons and their eventual accumulation. Case studies demonstrate how such modeling helps establish fluid presence and type and assess exploration risk before drilling.
