Characterizing unconventional reservoirs involves the investigation of a wide range of potential source-rock targets at various stages of thermal maturity. These samples may contain a mixture of kerogen, bitumen, oil, and pyrobitumen within their fabric. Thus, it is critical that we properly identify and examine each organic phase to better understand reservoir properties. In the present study, we have selected samples of gilsonite from a naturally occurring solid hydrocarbon deposit to serve as an analog for characterizing the bitumen phase of generation.

Gilsonite is an aromatic-asphaltic solid bitumen found in vertical veins along the eastern portion of the Uinta...
