Organic Shale Analysis
Geochemical and petrographic technique used to determine quantity, quality, and maturity of organic carbon.
Specific measurement of various parameters used to determine viability of mudrocks. These parameters
include TOC (organic richness), S1 (free hydrocarbons in rock), S2 (remaining hydrocarbon potential),
S3 (organic CO2), Tmax (Thermal Maturity). The new RockEval 6 has an extended pyrolysis range that
allows for better characterization of the free hydrocarbons and provides a measure of the inorganic CO2).
Provides direct observation and measurement of relevant fossils and macerals distributed in mudrocks and coal.
