Fluid flow systems are underground plumbing systems that cycle water, gas or petroleum between the earth’s interior, the ocean and the atmosphere.  

Fluid flow systems in carbonate platforms: We identified two fluid flow systems that govern the hydrogeology of the Malta Plateau the deeper of which shows evidence of migration of thermogenic fluids along faults and pipe structures, and is driven by relict tectonic overpressures (Micallef et al., 2011).
