Chemical stratigraphy is a reservoir correlation tool involving the interpretation of inorganic geochemical data.
Hierarchical zonations are developed using graphical and statistical techniques based on variations in key elements and ratios. Chemical stratigraphy can be utilised successfully on any stratigraphic interval from any geographic location. It has been effectively applied by RPS on a worldwide basis for many operating companies.
RPS use the following instrumentation
ICP-OES is used to acquire data for major elements (e.g. Si, Ca, Mg, K, Fe) and high abundance trace elements (e.g. Zr, Sr, Ba), whilst ICP-MS is used to generate data for low concentration trace elements (e.g. Cs, Ta, U) and rare earth elements (e.g. La, Ce, Yb). CV-AFS is used to measure trace levels of mercury.
