The amount of carbon dioxide in clastic rocks in sedimentary basins increases with depth. Organic matter, dissolved organic species, and dissolution of carbonate minerals have been suggested as sources of CO{sub 2}, which increases in abundance with depth and temperature. Isotopic compositions of aqueous HCO{sub 3}{sup {minus}}, gaseous CO{sub 2}, and calcite from conventional hydrocarbon wells and steam-assisted recovery of heavy oil suggest that calcite, or other carbonate minerals, are the… CONTINUE READING
