The aim of the study is to find representative fluid samples and study depth gradient and lateral variations in the Lower Cretaceous reservoir. Consistency analysis methods for the samples will be carried out to find representative reservoir fluid samples that can be used in a depth gradient study. Based on the representative samples, it will be analyzed and investigated whether observed compositional variations between samples can be explained by compositional gradients originating from gravitational and/or thermal gradient effects. This work illustrates how a depth gradient analysis can help in understanding fluid communication between the representative samples.
