Abstract

The study of the maturation of organic matter is of interest to the Petroleum Exploration Industry. Liquid hydrocarbons are generated over a restricted maturation interval, and are related to a time, temperature function. Techniques now available for determining the location of the hydro-carbon -generating interval in a sedimentary basin; ; a r e I "fission track" a time-consuming quasi-academic technique, and vitrinite reflectance - a fully commercial technique, that takes a fraction of the time.
