Exploring for oil and gas Traps is one of the main aim of the “Crude Oil Exploration in
the World” which represents an important part of the Treatise of Petroleum Geology
and Geochemistry in the world.
We have chosen eleven distinguished papers from the entire submitted researches
around the world in the field of oil and gas exploration and environmental application
from the world. These researches represent a guide to the petroleum geologists and
geochemists all over the world.
The Deepwater Horizon Oil Disaster is one of the worst environmental disasters in history. The resulting
crude oil and Corexit (dispersant) in the Gulf of Mexico can cause harm to humans and the environment
When discussing the effects of the oil spill, use of the term toxic causes difficulty in that it can describe
either toxic to humans, toxic to nature or both.
Self‐reported retrospective symptomology is used to identify health effects that may or may not be
associated with a participant’s presence within a spill‐affected community. These questions are
designed to evaluate health symptoms that individuals may attribute to environmental exposures to
crude oil or associated emissions.
