Geochemical Lab Analysis

HPO Global provides geochemical testing and analytical capabilties for Oil and Gas clients on a global basis. Some of our Geochemical Lab Analysis include, but are not limited to:

  • High Resolution Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (GCMS-Biomarkers). Used for source typing, thermal maturity, oil-source correlation, Source rock dating from C26 Steranes.
  • 13C Stable Isotopic Analysis of Gases by (GC-IRMS). Gas characterisation and reservoir compartmentation.
  • Gas Chromatography (GC). Oil and extract characterisation.
  • High Temperature Gas Chromatography. Wax characterisation C14 to C80+.
  • High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC)
  • Pyrolysis - Gas Chromatography (PGC). Oil to gas generation potential.
  • Pyrolysis - "Rock Eval" . Petroleum potential.
  • Physical property and elemental analysis. API Gravity, Viscosity, S, Ni, V, N, TAN, Wax content etc.
  • Oil and Gas Source Rock Analysis.
