Analysis of the molecular composition and quantity of pyrolytic hydrocarbons in 41 samples from Owen Ridge and the Oman margin enabled us to identify chemical differences in the organic matter from Owen Ridge and the Oman margin. The differences may be attributed to regional variability in organic matter composition between margin and ridge, effects of kerogen formation and condensation with age, and effects of changes in the depositional environment on the Oman margin. Pyrolytic hydrocarbons...
