Abstract

Since the 1950’s, along with the discoveries of the Daqing oil field and exploration in the Bohai bay area, terrestrial petroleum geology exploration has been gradually developed. The theory of oil generation in a terrestrial basin and multiple oil-gas accumulation zones is the core of terrestrial petroleum geology. This new hypothesis not only improved the theory of petroleum geology, but it also effectively directed oil and gas exploration in the Chinese terrigenous basin. In addition, numerous structural types of oil and gas reservoirs were discovered, more than a dozen oil and gas production bases were developed, which include Daqing, Bohai bay, Changqing and Xinjiang, and which effectively supported the construction and development of the Chinese national economy.
