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


Summary
Abstract: This data set includes mass fragmentograms and mass spectra obtained from gas
chromatography - mass spectrometry (GC-MS) analyses of mainly saturated and
aromatic hydrocarbons fractions of crude oils, condensates and rock organic
extracts. Distributions of selected classes of compounds are widely used to
recognize petroleum genetic relationships (oil-oil, oil-source correlations)
and various forms of petroleum alteration (mainly thermal and/or biological).
The data have been collected using various gas chromatography - mass
spectrometry (GC-MS) equipment operating in several experimental modes (mainly
selected ion monitoring [SIM], full scan [FS] and multiple reaction monitoring
[MRM]).

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. These
data are used in the determination of the geochemical composition of crude oils
and rock extracts, biomarker distribution, oil-oil correlation, oil-source
correlation, oil alteration, biodegradation, thermal maturation, petroleum
system analysis, petroleum source potential, petroleum exploration, energy
assessment, environmental geology and petroleum production engineering.
