Oils found in many Australian sedimentary basins contain a relatively high input of terrigenous organic source material. A study of a large number of these oils has permitted a number of biomarker distributions to be determined that appear to be characteristic for oils derived from terrigenous source material. These features include the presence of sesquiterpanes, absence of tricyclic terpanes, relatively high concentrations of a C24-tetracyclic terpane, predominance of C29-steranes, presence… CONTINUE READING
