Source rock composition for oil and gas reservoirs
Intertek evaluates petroleum source rocks using organic carbon content, hydrocarbon content, kerogen maceral analysis, visual kerogen, and vitrinite reflectance.
The geochemistry laboratories provide detailed oil reservoir source rock evaluation services that includes TOC determination, source rock potential determination through Rock Eval Pyrolysis and source rock proclivity and maturity determination utilizing Vitrinite Reflectance and Visual Kerogen Typing techniques.
Vitrinite Reflectance provides measurement of maximum palaeotemperatures in hydrocarbon-bearing basins. Visual Kerogen Typing offers identification of Kerogen. Kerogen is solid, waxy, insoluble organic matter found in oil shale rock, consisting of a variety of hydrocarbons.
