Gulf of Mexico Geochemical Database
The Gulf of Mexico Database has been compiled using geochemical data extracted from our extensive collection of publically available literature.
The database comprises over 7,000 samples from 55 sources, including more than 950 oils, 2,500 gases and 3000 rock samples. TOC content is reported for over 3000 samples with most of these also having additional pyrolysis data. Molecular data are widely available for more than 80 samples (mostly oils) with many hundreds more reporting values for the most common compound ratios. The isotopic composition of over 800 oils, extracts and gases are recorded and over 350 samples have vitrinite reflectance values.
The Gulf of Mexico Geochemical Database is provided with a Well Manager file containing available lithostratigraphy and basic well information for all included wells. This allows the user to seamlessly add samples from proprietary or in-house sources to the database, and assign uniform stratigraphy, map coordinates and other well information. The dynamic database automatically updates all plots on sample addition to minimise reaction time between data acquisition and interpretation.
