pdf  Application of confocal fluorescence microscopy in the examination of oil-and-gas bearing sedimentary rocks
For the first time the using of confocal fluorescent microscopy was undertaken for the study of sedimentary rocks from oil-and-gas bearing sequences. The first experience has shown that this device can be successfully used for the identification of bituminous components’ distribution in rocks, and for making their quality and quantitative estimation. The results showed wide opportunities for this method to be used in lithological research and petroleum exploration.
Key words: confocal fluorescent microscopy, sedimentary rocks, petroleum bearing rocks, bituminous components.
