Powder River Basin Cretaceous Oil Study

Detailed Analysis of Oils from Cretaceous Formations of the Powder River Basin

GeoMark Research has completed a regional geochemical assessment of Cretaceous-aged petroleum systems in the Powder River Basin.

The project utilizes detailed oil analyses to identify and evaluate each of the Cretaceous petroleum systems in the basin. This study provides a more thorough understanding of source and migration relationships and contributes to the evolving exploration of Cretaceous sands in the basin. In its entirety, the study involves the detailed oil analysis of 164 oil samples sourced from and reservoired in multiple Cretaceous units.

At least three distinct source rock units are responsible for generating the oil contained in the various reservoir units. Two major oil families, corresponding to Upper and Lower Cretaceous source units have been identified, each with three sub-families.

A proprietary analytical technique allows us to obtain high-resolution source and maturity information for the first time from high-maturity oils using our GC/QQQ/MS.

Analytical Data provided in: PowerPt.TM (interpretive report), ExcelTM, AccessTM, and ESRI ArcViewTM.
