DescriptionMaster Thesis MSc Petroleum Engineeringen
Content SummaryBiological markers (biomarkers) are a large group of hydrocarbons that are readily employed to assess the nature of petroleum oil samples. While the chemical applications of biomarkers are vast, this study used selected acyclic and cyclic, polycyclic terpenoids, and tetraterpenoids to understand the nature of twenty Williston Basin oils. The analysis also used the BioTool, an updated database that was developed for this particular study. Some of the reliable biomarker ratios included saturated hydrocarbon pristine/phytane ratio, diasteranes/steranes, C24/C23 tricyclic terpane, C24TeT/C30 hopane, and C31 22R homohopane/C30 hopane. Overall, a biomarker analysis using the BioTool is efficient, effective, and user-friendly. Further work should be carried out developing constraints on the biomarker ratios for certain characteristic oil Basins.en
