Potential hydrocarbon traps
The formation of hydrocarbon traps is the result of local depositional and deformational history. The trap formation is governed by three main parameters: the geometry of the reservoir body, the sedimentary sealing history and the tectonic history. In the present chapter is discussed the distribution of potential hydrocarbon traps in different areas, each characterized by a structural style (figs. 47, 48). After a short definition of basic trap types, various areas of the Danish Central Graben, each of which is characterized by a certain structural style, are listed and described with emphasis on the distribution of potential hydrocarbon traps.
