Oil & Gas Geochemistry
Classical molecular analysis such as GC-FID, GC-MS of saturate and aromatic biomarkers and carbon Isotope and elemental methods provide important information for oil and gas geochemistry, but these methods are just the starting point for determining the petroleum system details in any petroliferous basin.
Advanced Geochemistry Technology (AGT), on the other hand, is fast becoming a very important tool for evaluating petroleum systems in petroliferous basins. Instead of only providing fingerprints, it allows for the tracing and understanding of the physical-chemical thermal processes during oil and gas generation, migration and cracking. The technology focuses solely on chemical proportion and carbon, sulfur, CO2 and hydrogen isotopes. These analyses are critical to identifying and characterizing gas origin, mixing, migration distance, oil cracking and closed/open gas systems.
