Thermal Maturity Modeling Of Rag-e-Safid Oilfield, Southwest Iran



Hydrocarbon resources form from several phyisco-chemical processes during geological time scale that end up to hydrocarbon generation, migration and accumulation. Basin modeling is a tool for simulation of these processes and it embraces complex calculations that are encoded in the modeling software. Advantages and results of such studies has caused frequent use of this method in oil industries and basin modeling software has improved accordingly. In this research a 2D model for one of the Zogros anticlines has been constructed using a 2D basin modeling software and available geological data. In the constructed model hydrodynamic processes, heat conductivity, hydrocarbon generation, migration and accumulation is simulated. Fluid saturation rate, temperature condition, hydrocarbon migration pathway is modeled in the studied cross section
