Hydrocarbon Fluid Inclusions in Petroliferous Basins trains readers to detect Hydrocarbon Fluid Inclusions (HCFIs) in sedimentary
rocks, particularly the wafer preparation techniques to visualize HCFIs, its distinction from aqueous inclusions, petrographic
approaches to HCFIs, microthermometric observations on HCFIs, fluorescence emission spectra and Raman spectra of HCFIs, and
their interpretations for the petroleum industry. The book features case studies from the Mumbai and Kerala Konkan Basins
of the Western Offshore of India - two representative basins where new, non-destructive, fluid inclusion techniques were tested.
This book is essential reading for students of petroleum geology and those working in exploration in the oil and gas industry.
