Minami-Aga Oil Field, Japan, as Viewed from the Crude Oil Properties (Part 2)

1970 Journal of the Japanese Association for Petroleum Technology  
In this paper we discuss (1) abundance ratios of some isomers of lighter hydrocarbons that would characterize the Minami-Aga crude oil, and (2) n-heptane-2 methylhexane-3 methylhexane relationship as viewed from the crude oil evolution. At first we deal with the subject (1). In general , the abundance ratios of hydrocarbon isomers, which could characterize the crude oil from a reservoir and may have been kept almost constant during the time of secondary migration and accumulation of the crude
