.... Heavy and extra-heavy oils in the Eastern Venezuela basin have been classified in oil families regarding their origin related to source rock facies such as the three families proposed by Alberdi et al., 1996 based on the V/Ni ratio and some biomarkers. Nevertheless, it is well known that crude oils...
