Cosmochim. Authigenic calcite in the sandy conglomerates of the Baikouquan Formation occurs mainly as coarsely crystalline cement (Fig. Sequences of sample analyses (typically three measurements) were bracketed by 1–2 analyses of standards. Integrating the methane oxidation and calcite precipitation processes, the δ13C of authigenic calcite is expected to be 19 to 24‰ lower than that of the residual methane. 8). However, authigenic calcites are not restricted in the conglomerates and sandstones charged by liquid oil, they also occur in the wells far away from the oil-charging area. Carbon and oxygen isotopic compositions in authigenic calcites. 57, 177–210 (2002). AAPG Bull. Lond. Kallmeyer, J. The net effect of biodegradation is an overall decrease in wet gas components (C2+) and enrichment in methane19. The non-hydrocarbon component consists mainly of N2, with minor CO2 and no detectable H2S. The absence of 25-norhopanes and other representative values of key parameters also show no evidence for biodegradation (Supplementary Table 3).

Molten metal oxides (liquids) that do conduct electricity. Taking the carbon isotope kinetic fractionation factor (α) to be 103/(103−∆) in reactions (1) and (2), where ∆ = δ13Ci-CH4−δ13CCO2, we calculate an α value of 1.0175–1.0193 for Reaction (2) at 90–135 °C24. TOM reactions induced by high-valence metal oxides instead of sulfate have never been reported in natural systems, though they have been simulated in the laboratory 24,25,26,27. The early-stage cements have consistently lower MnO content than the late-stage cements. Natural gas reservoirs in sedimentary basins are typically buried to depths of several kilometers, and experience temperatures from 60 to 150 °C17, while the metabolism of the archaeal groups responsible for AOM are mainly active at temperatures below 80 °C18,19, limiting the depth at which archaea dominate the conversion of CH4 to CO2.

Nature 269, 209–213 (1977). One is the sufficient supply of Mn3+/4+, which is present as hematite within brown clastic rocks and guarantees that almost all of the gaseous alkanes, including methane, will be consumed in the bleaching pathways49. 26, 395–408 (1998). Carbon isotope fractionation is expected to occur during thermal oxidation of methane, with the fractionation factor controlled by a number of factors, including the type of oxidant and the temperature24,27,53. Thermochemical sulfate reduction can also be ruled out. The nature of active sites in selective oxidation reactions will also be briefly discussed. Newswise Blog. 161, 291–314 (1999). 100, 62–79 (2016). 3a). Gas.

The T1b reservoir strata were buried at depths of 2250–3200 m when they were firstly charged with methane in the Early Jurassic32. Nature Communications ADS  Geoanal. The oxides of non-metals are acidic in nature. In detail, the MnO content of early-stage calcite cements is generally lower than 4.00 wt.%, while late-stage cements typically have MnO content greater than 5.00 wt.%, some up to 11.00–15.00 wt.% (Fig. J. Thus, the expected δ13C of authigenic calcite is −70 to −59‰. All δ18O values were calibrated against the UWC-3 calcite standard (δ18O = −17.87‰, 1σ = 0.03‰; cf. Mafic-ultramafic rocks were weathered extensively from the provenance during the period of deposition and were ultimately deposited in the organic matter-depleted red layers of T1b (Supplementary Fig. Oxidation of CH4 to CO2 and H2O by chloritization of detrital biotite at 270 ± 5 °C in the external part of the Central Alps, Switzerland. 5), especially ~C8–C12 which are preferentially removed in the earliest stages of biodegradation19. & Brown, S. Open and restricted hydrologies in Brent Group diagenesis: North Sea. In general, the residual methane is enriched in 13C as the reaction proceeds, while the generated CO2 is depleted, resulting in CO2 with a lower δ13C value than the initial methane pool (δ13Ci-CH4).

Carbon isotope fractionation during methane-dominated TSR in East Sichuan Basin gasfields, China: A review. Thermochemical sulfate reduction (TSR) consuming methane has been observed to occur in geological systems13,14,15,20. Assuming an average authigenic calcite content of 2.5% in the relevant reservoir beds, we calculated a total authigenic calcite mass of 420 Tg. Crystal chemistry of trace elements in natural and synthetic goethite. This is the currently selected item. With the above estimate of the total mass of calcite cement in the Mahu18-Aihu2 district, we can calculate the mass of methane that would have been necessary to generate this cement. b The study area is located in the west slope of the Mahu Sag adjacent to the northwestern marginal thrust faults of the Junggar Basin.

But metals showing high oxidation states can from oxides with a covalent nature. Contamination of measurements by organic carbon was avoided by carefully choosing spots free of micro fractures or inclusions. Because AOM depends on the presence of biological mediators, and there is no evidence for biological modification, we can rule out this process of methane oxidation19,47. 22, 331–349 (2005). The former is formed via bacterial methanogenesis at temperatures generally below 50–60 °C in the P1f source rock57, whereas the latter is generated as a concomitant of liquid oil expelled from low-maturity source rock19. In organic matter-enriched geological systems, both oxidation of organic matter and thermal decarboxylation of organic acids can generate significantly 13C-depleted CO2, which may then be incorporated into authigenic calcite11,12,13,27,35. (parts per billion volume) during AD 800–1600 to 1799 p.p.b.v. and X.K. However, methane is also a significant greenhouse gas, second only to CO2 in the contribution to the current global greenhouse effect3,4; during certain intervals of the geologic past, such as the Archean, it was perhaps the most significant greenhouse gas in the atmosphere5,6. Petrol. Details of the calculations are described in the Methods section. Oxides of the transition metals with oxidation numbers of +1, +2, and +3 are ionic compounds consisting of metal ions and oxide ions. The discovery of intrinsic magnetic topological order in MnBi2Te4 has invigorated the search for materials with coexisting magnetic and topological phases. This reaction resulted in the precipitation of authigenic calcite cements, characterized by extremely negative δ13C values (−70 to −22.5‰) and high manganese contents (average MnO = 5 wt.%). 105, 11981–11990 (2000). Today 47, 161–167 (1999). Fluid inclusion and hydrocarbon charge history for reservoir of Baikouquan Formation in the Mahu Sag, Junggar Basin. In addition, it should be noted that the contributions of oxidation of minor C2+ and decarboxylation of organic acids from the source rock cannot be ruled out (Fig. 4b). Cosmochim.

The oxide ions in a metal oxide generally react with water to form hydroxide ions which are basic in nature (OH-). Due to its diffusion superiority of volatile natural gas relative to liquid oil, it can be approximately assumed that all carbon in the cement is derived from natural gas. Using this δ18O value, we calculated that the temperature was greater than 90 °C during formation of more than 85% of the total calcite, with a background temperature range of 90–135 °C and an average of 109.6 °C (see Supplementary Data 2), consistent with the temperatures estimated from the geothermal gradient. The ranges of δ13C values in methane, ethane, propane, and butane are −39.3 to −46.8‰, −27.5 to −31.9‰, −27.2 to −30.2‰, and −26.0 to −28.8‰, respectively (Supplementary Table 2). Geol. Due to the high diffusivity of methane, minor high-valence Mn (Fe) in the brown-red mudstone adjacent to the reservoir rocks may also be reduced. c TT is tricyclic terpane and H is hopane in the m/z 191 mass spectrogram. https://doi.org/10.1038/s41467-018-07267-x, DOI: https://doi.org/10.1038/s41467-018-07267-x, Marine and Petroleum Geology Geochim.

Its reaction conditions, as well as geological and geochemical responses, have been deeply explored13,14,15,20,21. Mn generally plays the dominant role compared to Fe, due to its lower Gibbs free energy increment during oxidation. & Hayhoe, K. Atmospheric methane and global change. Duplicate δ13C analyses of the calcite standard UWC-3 yield an external (spot to spot) precision (1σ) of 0.40–0.50‰. This value is close to that reported for the methane-dominated TSR in the East Sichuan Basin of China (1.0166) and the ethane-dominated TSR in the Jurassic Norphlet Formation of Mobile Bay (1.109)55.

The extremely negative δ13C values of authigenic calcite can be interpreted to be derived from organic matter35,36. Taking the geothermal gradient as 28–32 °C km−1 and the surface temperature as 20 °C during the Early Jurassic42, this corresponds to a formation temperature of 83–122 °C. An internal CO2 reference gas was introduced into the spectrometer prior to and after the peaks of interest. Researchers from the Catalysis Center for Energy Innovation (CCEI) have recently published breakthrough research on metal oxides in Nature Catalysis. You are using a browser version with limited support for CSS. Since then, methane has been oxidized more efficiently. The T1b sediments are derived from two provenances, i.e., the basement, comprising granite and mafic-ultramafic igneous rocks, and the sedimentary strata from the Carboniferous to the Permian28,31. The weathering of mafic-ultramafic rocks and tuffaceous components in sedimentary rocks forms abundant high-valence Fe-Mn oxides during T1b deposition interval (see Supplementary Note 2 for provenance analysis)34. & de Capitani, C.
