In this study CSIA was carried-out on a series of six crude oils and various rock extracts from Vaca Muerta Formation in the Neuquén Basin, onshore Argentina. We will propose some new maturity proxies based on CSIA and we will also discuss the effect of evaporative fractionation on the light hydrocarbon carbon isotopic compositions in the selected sample set.
