Basin Thermal Evolution of the Phitsanulok Basin, Thailand

by Sapol Raadnui
Phitsanulok Basin is the largest onshore rift basin in Thailand, where deep source rocks are thermally matured enough to generate petroleum. This research assesses the thermal history of the basin by incorporating stratigraphy, current surface heat flow, and vitrinite reflectance as constraints. The preferred models with basal heat flow differences indicate that petroleum has been generated and trapped since 14 Ma. This modeling can be applied to nearby basins to assess petroleum production history.
