South Viking Graben Oil Study

REGIONAL PETROLEUM GEOCHEMISTRY OF CRUDE OILS FROM THE SOUTH VIKING GRABEN, UNITED KINGDOM &NORWAY

GeoMark Research, Inc. has conducted an evaluation of the petroleum systems of the South Viking Graben. The project involved the detailed analysis of a suite of 60 crude oil samples collected over the entire length of the basin. Each oil has been characterized by an analytical program that includes bulk compositional data, quantitative biomarker analysis of terpanes and steranes, and determination of the stable isotope composition of the saturate and aromatic hydrocarbon fractions. Rigorous comparison of geochemical data was accomplished using cluster and principal component analyses. These statistical techniques are conformed in a way that permits predictions regarding a) the number of distinct sources active in the basin, b) the depositional environment of the source rocks, c) migration distances and d) oil mixing.
