Abstract

With the increasing importance of quantitative studies of hydrocarbon generation, an accurate classification of kerogen types is needed. On the basis of the widely-used trichotomic classification, which depends on elemental composition, a numerical kerogen type index (NKTI) has been developed; this takes the Previous HitmaturationTop level as a basic parameter and provides a numerical value to describe the composition or type of a kerogen.
