Description of organic matter type and measurement of vitrinite reflectance and thermal maturity

The organic petrography service delivers information about source rock type and associated organic matter, thermal maturity level, and the hydrocarbon generation zone. Interpretations of thermal maturity level and hydrocarbon generation zone are based on the reflectance measurements and overall observations of organic matter (OM) under the microscope with white and UV light in oil immersion or dry environment. Understanding of maceral composition of source rocks and interplay between OM and minerals allows for in-depth evaluation of source rock potential in conventional and unconventional exploration and production.
