Abstract: Twelve representative crude oil samples recovered from six oil fields in the Albertine Graben, Uganda were chosen for this study. The study aimed to understand the genetic relationships between the oils, the inferred depositional environment of the source rocks, maturity of the crude oils, and to gain some insight on the expulsion of the oils from source rocks. The work involved geochemical bulk analysis (asphaltene and liquid chromatographic separations), GC-FID (gas chromatography with a flame ion…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
