Title
(EN) METHOD TO ENHANCE EXPLORATION, DEVELOPMENT AND PRODUCTION OF HYDROCARBONS USING MULTIPLY SUBSTITUTED ISOTOPOLOGUE GEOCHEMISTRY, BASIN MODELING AND MOLECULAR KINETICS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ POUR AMÉLIORER L'EXPLORATION, LE DÉVELOPPEMENT ET LA PRODUCTION D'HYDROCARBURES À L'AIDE DE GÉOCHIMIE D'ISOTOPOLOGUE À SUBSTITUTION MULTIPLE, DE MODÉLISATION DE BASSIN ET DE CINÉTIQUE MOLÉCULAIRE
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.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé et un système qui peuvent être utilisés pour l'exploration, la production et le développement d'hydrocarbures. Le procédé et le système peuvent comprendre l'analyse d'un échantillon pour une signature géochimique, la signature géochimique comprenant une signature d'isotopologue à substitution multiple et/ou une signature isotopique spécifique à la position. Ensuite, une synchronisation d'altération peut être déterminé à partir de la ou des signatures et utilisé pour développer ou affiner une stratégie d'exploration, de développement ou de production.
