Use of biomarker distributions and compound specific isotopes of carbon and hydrogen
What is it about?
Biomarker ratios, together with stable carbon (d13C) and hydrogen (dD) isotopic compositions of individual hydrocarbons have been determined in a suite of crude oils
Why is it important?
Various molecular and isotopic parameters separate oils from the East Sirte Basin, Libya, into two main families. Those from the Sarir-L, Nafoora, Faregh and Sarir-C fields (family A) are appreciably more mature than those from the Amal, Gialo and Masrab fields (family B).
