Geochemical characterization of Devonian gas shale

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Detailed geochemical analyses are being used to provide an accurate assessment of the oil and gas resources present in the Devonian shales in the Appalachian and Illinois Basins. The suite of geochemical analyses is designed to evaluate the organic richness, the hydrocarbon potential, the type of organic matter and the thermal maturity of the organic matter. Laboratory techniques such as pyrolysis gas chromatography and mass balance thermal extraction were also employed to measure thermally derived oil and gas yields from the Devonian shales. Stable carbon isotope geochemistry has also been initiated. The first phase of this study involved the determination ... continued below
