Abstract

Chemostratigraphy is a promising technique for characterizing trap sequences in oil wells. The technique uses trace-element geochemistry to analyze and subdivide sedimentary sequences into geochemically distinct units. These units are then used to detect subtle geochemical heterogeneities in petroleum fields.
