Volume 11, Issue 3 , July 2022

https://doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2022.336808.1635

Abstract
  In this study, the hydrocarbon potential and depositional environments of the Coniacian Laffan Formation were investigated in the Binak Oilfield, SW Iran. With an average thickness of 80 meters, the Laffan Formation consists mainly of gray shales and thin argillaceous limestones in the study area. In ...  Read More

Bahram Habibnia; Omid Vallipour; Majid Alipour

Volume 10, Issue 4 , October 2021, , Pages 68-84

https://doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2022.307365.1614

Abstract
  The Qale-Nar oilfield is an asymmetric two-humped anticline located in the northernmost part of the Dezful embayment, in which the fractured Asmari carbonates are the primary reservoir rock. In this study, for the first time, the organic geochemistry of oils produced from the Asmari reservoir is used ...  Read More

Majid Alipour; Bahram Alizadeh; Scott Ramos; Behzad Khani; Shohreh Mirzaie

Volume 8, Issue 4 , October 2019, , Pages 1-17

https://doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2019.142950.1469

Abstract
  Chemometric methods can enhance geochemical interpretations, especially when working with large datasets. With this aim, exploratory hierarchical cluster analysis (HCA) and principal component analysis (PCA) methods are used herein to study the bulk pyrolysis parameters of 534 samples from the Persian ...  Read More

Majid Alipour; Bahram Alizadeh; Ali Chehrazi

Volume 6, Issue 4 , October 2017, , Pages 1-17

https://doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2017.53898

Abstract
  Commercial hydrocarbon discoveries in the Cretaceous of the southern Persian Gulf basin provide direct evidence that there is an effective petroleum system associated with the Cretaceous series. The revised models of thermal maturity in this region are needed to investigate lateral and stratigraphic ...  Read More

Bahram Alizadeh; Majid Alipour; Bahram Habibnia; Ahmad Reza Gandomi-Sani; Behzad Khani; Saber Shirvani; AmirAbbas Jahangard

Volume 4, Issue 1 , January 2015, , Pages 17-34

https://doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2015.8613

Abstract
  In an attempt to reconstruct the paleoenvironments of deposition for the Middle Jurassic Baghamshah formation, samples collected from six outcrop sections along the Shotori swell were subjected to detailed geochemical analyses. Bulk geochemical and biological marker data indicate a logical trend of the ...  Read More
