Whole oil Gas Chromatographic analyses of seven different crude oil samples from two oil fields south west Niger Delta, Nigeria which had not been previously characterized geochemically was carried out to determine the source signature of these fingerprints. Normal alkanes and Isoprenoids distribution shows n-C8 to n-C40. Low molecular weight hydrocarbons (
