Regional Cap Rock and Hydrocarbon Preservation

  • Yongsheng MaEmail author


In the current research, there is no standard method to analyze preservation condition because of different preservation conditions in different regions and basins (e.g., Tarim Basin, Ordos Basin, Sichuan Basin, and the majority of the Yangtze area).
