Assessment of Oil Mobility, Evaluation of Evaporative Loss and Correlation of Reservoir Compartments using HAWK Petroleum Assessment Method (HAWK-PAM)

Correlation of Tmax and measured vitrinite reflectance

Dan Jarvie, TCU Energy Institute Thermal maturity is an essential ingredient in assessing petroleum systems and the likely charge. This is especially true in unconventional resource systems where maturity and product are directly related. Various techniques may yield different interpretive results.
