Lecture 22 Petroleum system, chemistry & nature of petroleum

Resource summary

    1. Hydrocarbons
      1. natural gas, crude oil, tar, asphalt (s), bitumen (s)
        1. ~85% C, ~15% H, small amount S,O,N,metals
          1. Isomers
            1. same no. atoms, different structure
            2. Types
              1. aliphatic
                1. Impurities
                  1. Sulfur: poisonous +corrosive
                    1. CO2: dilute HC, greenhouse, commercial exploitable
                      1. requires refining processes to separate different size HC, remove contanminations
                      2. saturated/ unsaturated, can compose of S,N,O instead of C.
                      3. aromatic
                        1. HC has specialised ring structures include both single + double bonds
                        2. Paraffin (alkane)
                          1. Only contain C +H, single bond, saturated
                            1. eg: methane
                              1. <4C: gas at Rtemp, >4 liquid
                                1. linear/branches

                                      1. double bonds (alkene)
                                        1. triple bond (alkyne)
                                      2. structure, H:C ratio -> properties
