The noble gas isotope record of hydrocarbon field formation time scales

Abstract:

Noble gases may be considered as the most prominent tracers of natural fluids, including hydrocarbons. The atmosphere is the only source of 20Ne, 36Ar, 84Kr, 130Xe in subsurface environments, and their concentrations in pore waters after recharge are known from the solubility data. This allows modeling of noble gas partitioning between coexisting gas, oil and water phases in the course of hydrocarbon formation, migration, and storage. Radiogenic isotopes, 4He*, 21Ne*, 40Ar*, 136Xe*, after ...
