Geochemistry For Field Abandonment
Geochemical analyses of oil, water, and/or gas samples can aid in the detection of hydrocarbons in surface and near-surface environments, and can aid in the determination of the source(s) of those hydrocarbons.
At OilTracers, we use a variety of molecular and isotopic analyses of oil, water, and/or gas samples to characterize the composition and asses the origin of hydrocarbons. These techniques allow us to (1) distinguish naturally occurring hydrocarbon seeps from anthropogenic hydrocarbon releases, (2) assess the origin of oil or gas releases, and (3) monitor the fate of such releases over time.

Recognized experts in every aspect of applied geochemistry
At OilTracers, our earth scientists specialize in providing the petroleum industry with consulting solutions to exploration, development and production problems through integration of petroleum geochemistry (oil fingerprinting), geology and engineering data. We are here and ready to help you solve problems that arise throughout the oil field life cycle.
Specialists in the integration of geochemistry, geology and engineering data
The producing life of a petroleum field can be divided into the following stages: an Exploration stage, a Development stage, a Production stage, and ultimately a Field- Abandonment stage. Petroleum geochemistry is used to solve very different problems at each of these stages in the life of a field. Our Capabilities pages below describe the services we provide at each of these stages in the life of a petroleum accumulation.
Geochemistry applications are very valuable in the environmental aspects of field abandonment and post-exploration, post-production settings.
