Bolivia Oil Study

Geochemistry and Exploration Significance of Crude Oils and Oil Seeps from Bolivia

GeoMark Research, has completed a detailed, country-wide investigation of the geochemistry of crude oils and surface seeps from Bolivia. The study involves the detailed analysis of over 140 crude oil samples representing every sedimentary province in Bolivia.

Although several previous geochemical studies have evaluated the petroleum systems of Bolivia, none have taken this approach or have been this extensive. The source rocks that generated the oil in most of Bolivia were destroyed in Andean Orogeny, and therefore a detailed oil study is the only effective way of understanding the hydrocarbon generation history and assessing the remaining potential of the area.

This study provides valuable insight into a) the number of petroleum systems active within the region, b) the character of these systems, and c) the overall potential of the Bolivian basins/regions.
