Résumé

La matière organique contenue dans les sédiments récents offre une grande variété de composants. Le pétrole, cependant, est constitué essentiellement d'hydrocarbures. Le déplacement des fluides dans les roches se traduit par une chromatographie, où les particules colloïdales séparent sélectivement de la phase mobile les composants polaires. La répartition des hydrocarbures saturés dans une partie du gisement de l'Athabasca, au Canada, répond à la notion de chromatographie naturelle.
