http://dx.doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2022.277619.1615

Abstract
  The Asphaltene and metal naphthenate components of crude oil samples from ten different wells within an oil reservoir were determined using different analytical techniques. The asphaltene content was determined by gravimetric analyses while the metal naphthenate components were determined by obtaining ...  Read More

Volume 8, Issue 2 , April 2019, , Pages 34-52

http://dx.doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2018.128598.1454

Abstract
  Crude oils and source rocks from the northern and offshore Niger Delta basin, Nigeria, have been characterized by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry in terms of their origin and thermal maturity based on the distribution of chrysene and its derivatives. The crude oils and source rocks were characterized ...  Read More
