ORGCHEM Petroleum Source Rock Database; BMR, Australia
Entry ID: EARTH_CRUST_AUS_BMR_Petrol_DB1


Summary
Abstract: ORGCHEM is a relational database that contains organic geochemical
data used for petroleum source rock assessment. The majority of data
is from petroleum exploration wells drilled offshore and onshore Australia.
Limited data from selected overseas areas of interest to BMR research
activities. Company petroleum well completion reports are the major
source of data. Data includes the basin, well and formation name, age,
upper and lower depth, sample and rock type, total organic carbon, mean
and minimum and maximum vitrinite reflectance, TAI, SCI, percentage alginite,
exinite, vitrinite, and inertinite. Solvent extract data includes wt. of
rock, extract, extract used, wt of saturated, aromatic, polar and asphaltene
components. Elemental composition includes percentage carbon, hydrogen,
oxygen, sulphur, nitrogen, iron, and ash. Additional data held outside the
database includes GC, GCMS, pyrolysis-GC, and stable isotopes. The data
base is 10 Mbytes. It is available for $5000 (total database) from the
Bureau of Mineral Resources, Australia (FED/BMR).
