Gas Chromatography Data for Crude Oils, Condensates and Rock Extracts From Canadian and Selected International Sedimentary Basins
Entry ID: Canada_GSC_GasChromatCrudeOils


Summary
Abstract: This data set includes gas chromatograms obtained from GC-FID analyses of mainly gasoline range (i-pentane to n-octane range) and saturated hydrocarbons fractions (>n-decane) of crude oils, condensates and rock organic extracts. Compound distribution patterns and a variety of compound ratios (based on compound relative or normalized abundance) are commonly used in organic geochemistry and petroleum studies to characterize crude oils, bitumens or dispersed sedimentary organic matter, and in oil-oil and oil-source correlation studies. These data have been utilized in petroleum system analysis applied to exploration, petroleum engineering optimization and environmental impacts mitigation in most Canadian and some international sedimentary basins. The data have been collected using various gas chromatograph (GC) flame ionization detector (FID) equipment, quantified using PE Nelson client/server software with quantification results verified by a technologist. These data are used in the determination of: geochemical composition of crude oils and rock extracts, oil-oil correlation, oil-source correlation, oil alteration, biodegradation, thermal maturation, petroleum system analysis, petroleum source potential, petroleum exploration, energy assessment, environmental geology, petroleum production engineering.
