Zagros Fold Belt Geochemical Study

PETROLEUM GEOCHEMISTRY OF CRUDE OILS FROM THE GREATER ZAGROS FOLD BELT TREND TURKEY, SYRIA, IRAQ, IRAN, SAUDI ARABIA, AND UAE

GeoMark has performed a regional assessment of the Zagros Fold Belt of the Arabian Plate by geochemically analyzing a suite of 312 crude oil samples listed in the Appendix. Each oil sample has been characterized by a detailed analytical program that includes bulk compositional data, quantitative biomarker analysis of terpanes and steranes, distribution of aromatic biomarkers, and determination of stable carbon isotope composition of saturate and aromatic hydrocarbon fractions. Ninety-seven (97) oils are new samples from Iran not previously analyzed by GeoMark. The geochemical results were integrated with regional and local geology to assess age and type of source rocks, thermal maturity trends, degree of petroleum system mixing, and oil quality.
