Integrated techniques for the assessment of thermal maturity of organic matter and sedimentary successions for petroleum system assessment


Topic: Correlation among organic and inorganic indicators of thermal maturity in diagenesis and anchizone by means of organic petrography, XR diffraction on clay minerals, Ftir and Raman spectroscopy, low T thermochronology, Petrography and microthermometry of Fluid Inclusions.

Main results: Reconstruction of basin maturity charts, setup of work best practices, assessment of advantages and pitfalls of different techniques.

Study areas:
– Italy – Eastern Sicily (section between Peloritani Mts. and and Iblean Plateau)
– Ukraine – Carpathians and Podolie foreland
