Ghadames Basin and Illizi Platform

REGIONAL PETROLEUM GEOCHEMISTRY OF CRUDE OILS AND SELECTED SOURCE ROCKS FROM THE GHADAMES BASIN AND THE ILLIZI PLATFORM

GeoMark Research, Inc. has completed a regional study of the petroleum systems of the greater Ghadames Basin-Illizi Platform of Algeria, Libya, and Tunisia. The purpose of the effort is to define, more clearly, the oil and gas potential of the region. This was accomplished by analyzing a suite of more than 900 cuttings and 80 crude oil samples. This project is sanctioned by Sonatrach.

Data from the analyses of oils will be used to define the number of distinct oil families, distribution of oil families, maturity differences between oils, and mixing of oil families. Correlation of the oil and source rock analyses were undertaken in the effort to identify the facies responsible for generating the oils reservoired in the region. The study successfully separated and defined oils derived from Paleozoic sources whose compositions are similar. This was facilitated using state-of-the-art analytical techniques and sophisticated statistical clustering and classification methods.
