Hydrocarbon gas composition and isotopic composition of methane were analyzed from cutting samples obtained from industry oil wells penetrating the Eileen and Tarn gas-hydrate deposits. These gas-hydrate deposits overlie the Prudhoe Bay and Kuparuk River oil fields and are restricted to the updip part of a series of nearshore deltaic sandstone reservoirs in the lower Tertiary (Eocene) Mikkelsen Tongue of the Canning Formation and the Tertiary Staines Tongue of the Sagavanirktok Formation, respectively. The Eileen and Tarn gas hydrates are thought to contain a mixture of deep-source thermogenic gas and shallow, microbial gas (methane carbon isotopic composition ranges from...
