5 Foreword Petroleum Geochemistry is a branch of Organic Geochemistry that deals with the study of distribution, composition and constitution of petroleum, its constituents and its precursors in sedimentosphere at gross and molecular levels to define principles of occurrence and origin of petroleum in sedimentary basins, the ubiquitous natural habitats of economically attractive accumulations. The vicissitudes of basin evolutionary history of each sedimentary basin are complex and no two points along dip or strike theoretically have identical depositional conditions. No technique of petroleum exploration is, therefore, equally sensitive and accurate in space and time. Petroleum exploration and exploitation is thus both knowledge and technology intensive and is essentially a multidisciplinary task where an inadequacy of one discipline or technique is covered by strengths of one or other discipline or technique or set of disciplines or techniques. While geology and geophysics are excellent in unraveling the types of rocks, their physical attributes, structural attitudes and their distribution and superposition in space and time in a basin, they are unable to deal directly with aspects of origin, migration and accumulation of petroleum.

6 viii One of the imperatives of the industry is to have knowledge on aspects of origin and occurrence of petroleum specific to each basin or part thereof. This is essential to ensure reduction of risk in petroleum exploration. Petroleum Geochemistry helps exploration and development effort in each phase, right from reconnaissance and stage of general assessment to the final stage of extraction of the last producible content of hydrocarbons in a locale of accumulation, by providing geochemical concepts and data sets on various aspects of origin, migration and accumulation of petroleum specific to each basin under exploration and development. Tremendous developments have taken place in acquisition of petroleum geochemical data since the nineteen sixties through availability of robust equipments and methods of chemical analysis. It is now possible to have practically real time geochemical data to be integrated timely for making an exploration or development decision. Synergy amongst Petroleum Geology, Petroleum Geochemistry and Geophysics has become an accepted practice for laying down risk based priorities in a portfolio of exploration and development opportunities. The synergy also leads to working out manageable investments to initialize an E&P activity with cash flows that can be deployed for further exploration and development efforts while assuring market competitive returns during the entire cycle of any given exploration and development activity. Dr. D. Satyanarayana of the Delta Studies Institute of Andhra University has done yeoman s service to Indian academia to bring out a maiden Indian text book on Petroleum Geochemistry. This book will be found useful to graduate and postgraduate students taking courses in petroleum geology, petroleum exploration and petroleum engineering. The book touches upon authentically all aspects of petroleum geochemistry that are relevant to exploration and development effort. In India, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation commenced undertaking petroleum geochemical studies in 1957 and established formal laboratories in ONGC Limited has since 1963 best in class research facilities in Petroleum Geochemistry at Keshav Dev Malviya Institute of Petroleum Exploration (KDMIPE) along with a strong Basin Studies Group at Dehradun. ONGC Limited also has, since 1985, standard data acquisition laboratories in all operational areas. Oil India has modern Petroleum Geochemistry laboratories

7 ix since National Geophysical Research Institute has a National Centre of Excellence in Surface Geochemical Prospecting backed by Oil Industries Development Board and Director General Hydrocarbons since which caters to the requirements of geochemical data acquisition of various private sector oil companies and DGH to help evaluate prospectively of various acreages and exploration blocks. All private sector and joint venture major upstream oil companies profusely integrate geochemical data in exploration decision making. This book of Dr. Satyanarayana is therefore has great practical value for the upstream petroleum industry in general and especially for India where large acreages still remain explored, where deep and ultra deep water exploration has just begun and where the ageing oil fields are being operated for maximizing recovery factors. To students with enquiring and creative minds and aptitude for innovation, the book surely would inspire to undertake basic and applied research. Dr. Satyanarayana joins the illustrious eminent academicians of the world, who brought out books born of lecture notes meant to disseminate in depth knowledge of Petroleum Geochemistry for geoscientists actively engaged in upstream activities. The book is going to be a prized possession of academia in geosciences and of all the scientists and engineers of the upstream petroleum industry who are desirous to contribute their mite towards sustaining and augmenting global energy security through long time availability of petroleum.

9 Preface During the last three decades there has been a rapid progress in petroleum geochemistry. The aim of this book is to cover the advances in a comprehensive way providing a background for understanding the basic concepts and principles. It is designed to develop principles of petroleum geochemistry and emphasise its applications to hydrocarbon exploration. Several geochemical and analytical techniques are described along with their relative merits and limitations so that an appropriate technique can be selected in a particular exploration programme. Application of principles of petroleum geochemistry to common exploration programmes are lucidly brought out by introducing worked out examples and case studies. The book is written primarily for postgraduate students of earth sciences and graduate students of engineering taking courses in petroleum science or engineering. It is also useful for those working in oil industry dealing with exploration and related fields. Each geochemical concept is explained in detail prior to its application. Adequate references are cited in the text. Exhaustive list of books, memoirs, papers published in journals and proceeding of World Congress, International Seminars and Symposia are included in the bibliography for further reading. The contents are arranged in the following sequence so as to interpret geochemical data of varied

10 xii reliability and to unravel complex geochemical processes involved in petroleum exploration and production.
