C7 Comparative Study

C7 Light Hydrocarbon Global Research Study

A global collection of over 370 crude oil samples representing more than 80 petroleum systems of various ages and source rock types was analyzed for light hydrocarbons using ultra high resolution gas chromatography. The results were evaluated primarily with respect to the C7 interpretive schemes of Mango (1987, 1990, 1994) and BeMent et al. (1994). Light hydrocarbon parameters of Thompson (1983) were also considered. The usefulness and limitations of light hydrocarbons in 1) performing oil/oil/condensate correlation studies; 2) determining post-generative alteration effects (e.g., fractionation during migration, water washing, mild biodegradation); 3) estimating thermal maturities of oils; and 4) predicting source rock depositional environments were assessed. In addition, the effects of sample handling and lightened evaporation during storage were addressed.
