Study of the Parameters and Bio-Markers of Crudeoils

Indra Prasad Pandey


Geo-chemical Fossils are derived from living organisms and are complex compounds containing C,H and other elements. These compounds show the structures indicating that these are the components of living organisms. Geochemical fossils find their applications in correlations of oil. Organic matter input, depositional environment and biodegradation. The occurrence of biological marker in crude oil is studied qualitatively as well as quantitatively. Several ratios and specified ranges of parameters are the basis of classification and geo-chemical characterization of different types of crude oils.


Molecular fossils; Isoprenoids; Biomarkers; n-alkanes
