The content of alkanes, cyclohexanes and olefins in the light fractions of shale oil after the autoclave pyrolysis (with oversaturated water) at different final temperatures, was detected by GC-MS analysis and presented in Table 8.
It can be seen that the content of alkanes decreases with the increasing temperature, while the content of cyclohexanes and olefins increases with the increasing temperature at first to a maximum value and then decreases.
From the results it is as s umed that the reservoir is organically polluted with cyclohexanes.
