    GEOCHEMICAL COMPOSITION AND SPECIFIC PROPERTIES OF CRUDE OILS FROM RAS GHARIB OILFIELDS IN THE CENTRAL GULF OF SUEZ, EGYPT
    Mohamed M El Nady*, Fatma S Ramadan, Mahmoud M Hammed, Nira M Lotfy

    The geochemical composition, API gravity, sulfur content and asphaltene content were determined for the crude oil samples collected from Gharib-164, Gharib-163, Gharib-106, Gharib-116 wells within the Ras Gharib oilfield located in the central Gulf of Suez. Saturated hydrocarbon fractions were subjected to gas chromatography and gas chromatography–mass spectroscopy in order to characterize the type of organo-facies, oil classes and depositional environments, as well as, to assess the thermal maturity level for oil generation. The results showed that the studied oils were belonging to normal oils classes with no heavy biodegradation. The crude oils were more mature and derived mainly from mixed organic sources.
