The history of hydrocarbon exploration and associated research extends back to the predecessor institutions of the BGR. However, significant progress has been made in hydrocarbon research in the last thirty years by the BGR staff, as outlined below.
Basic developments in isotope geochemistry have provided valuable tools for hydrocarbon exploration (Stahl, Faber and Berner). Exploration of the structural geology of northern Europe from England to Poland has reached a stage allowing all important events during basin formation and hydrocarbon genesis to be outlined (Kockel, Krull and Hoffmann).
Extensive research in organic geochemistry (Wehner) and petrography (Koch) on hydrocarbons and their source rocks has provided important new data on the maturation and the generation of petroleum and natural gas in the North German basin.
