Summary:The aim of this study was to establish a fluorescence-gross chemical relationship for a variety of crude oils entrapped as hydrocarbon fluid inclusions and then to demonstrate the application to the study of crude oils and natural hydrocarbon fluid inclusions from source rocks, reservoir rocks and carrier beds which are part of the same oil system. The method may be particularly useful for interpreting geological samples which contain multiple population of oil inclusions and those which do not yield hydrocarbons upon extraction by organic solvents. Two examples, from SE Saskatchewan and offshore Newfoundland, are presented to illustrate the practical application of the method to: 1) identify hydrocarbon migration pathways, 2) compare crude oil composition with hydrocarbon fluid inclusion composition from the same reservoir rock and 3) determine whether there is a relationship between oil type and specific diagenetic events which affected reservoir facies.
