Abstract:
Petroleum geochemical exploration is the science of using geochemical measurements to assess information about petroleum reservoirs before drilling. Vertical migration is the foundation of all geochemical exploration methods. Vertical migration provides the geochemical communication link between subsurface reservoirs and the surface. Vertical migration is the foundation of petroleum geochemical exploration.
