Suites of aromatic and saturated compounds which are indicative of plant resins from Araucariaceae have been identified in widely distributed sediments of Jurassic age from the Eromanga Basin. Similar biomarker assemblages have been shown not to be present in sediments of Permian age from the Cooper Basin. Some crude oils contained in reservoirs of Jurassic to Cretaceous age have been shown to contain the biomarker assemblage characteristic of the sediments of Jurassic age and, therefore… CONTINUE READING
