West of Shetlands Geochemical Study

CRUDE OIL AND SOURCE ROCK GEOCHEMISTRY AND THERMAL MODELING OF THE WEST OF SHETLANDS

GeoMark Research, has completed a review of the petroleum systems of the Faeroe and West Shetland Basins located west of the Shetland Islands, north of the British mainland. This is an integrated geological/geochemical study designed to assess the overall potential of the region.

The study involved the detailed analysis of 31 crude oil samples collected from the West of Shetland and surrounding basins. Each oil was characterized by a detailed analytical program that included bulk compositional data, quantitative bio-marker analysis of terpanes and steranes, and determination of stable carbon isotope composition of saturate and aromatic hydrocarbon fractions. Rigorous comparison of the geochemical data was accomplished using cluster and principal component analyses with corresponding source rock depo-sitional environment predictions.

Samples: A total of 31 samples were analyzed for this study. Eleven of the samples were from the West of Shetland region, with the remaining selected from surrounding basins.

Timing: The study is complete and available for immediate delivery.

Price: The cost of the study is (US) $32,500.
