Paradox Basin Geochemical Study

Geochemistry and Exploration Significance of Crude Oils and Natural Gases from the Paradox Basin

GeoMark Research has conducted an investigation of the petroleum geochemistry of oils and gases from the Paradox Basin. The intent of this project was to: 1) analyze a large number of oil and gas samples from the basin; 2) define the major petroleum systems implied by the geochemistry of these samples; and, 3) identify under-explored plays, and search the data set for oils and gases that are vagrants.

Each oil has been characterized by an analytical program that includes bulk compositional data, quantitative analysis of aromatic and saturate (terpanes and steranes) biomarkers, and determinations of stable isotope compositions of the saturate and aromatic hydrocarbon fractions. Evaluation and classification of the geochemical data has been accomplished using cluster and principal component analyses.

Samples: The study is based on the detailed analysis of 105 crude oil samples and 300+ gas samples from distributed across the entire Paradox Basin.

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

Price: The cost of the study is US $25,000.
