Technical Notes

Approximately every 6 to 8 weeks IGI will publish a concise “Technical Note” here on our website, which we hope will be of interest to our clients, or indeed anyone interested in petroleum geochemistry and petroleum systems analysis. These short documents will cover a wide range of topics within the fields of oil & gas geochemistry, petroleum source rocks, basin modelling, and even aspects of our software packages. The first of these appeared on our website in January 2016.  Please come back regularly to check for new additions.  The Technical Notes published so far can be found listed below, and also on our News Page as they are released.
