Title
(EN) Method to enhance exploration, development and production of hydrocarbons using multiply substituted isotopologue geochemistry, basin modeling and molecular kinetics
Abstract
(EN)

A method and system are described that may be used for exploration, production and development of hydrocarbons. The method and system may include analyzing a sample for a geochemical signature, wherein the geochemical signature includes a multiply substituted isotopologue signature and/or a position specific isotope signature. Then, alteration timing may be determined from the signature(s) and used to develop or refine an exploration, development or production strategy.
