Petroleum is a combination of presiding of hydrocarbons with fluctuate amount of non-hydrocarbon constituents and detected of organometallic compounds. Generally, Petroleum has mean constitution of 85% carbon, 13% hydrogen, and 2% of sulphur, nitrogen and oxygen. The aim of study is to find the role of organic chemistry and genetic property in petroleum geochemistry. In this study biomarkers, age specific biomarker and reservoir geochemistry can be used for the characterization, interrelation and/or reconstruction of the depositional environment as micro and macro fossils used by the geochemist for petroleum character.
