This paper considers the principles of deciphering basin‐scale hydrocarbon migration patterns using the geochemical information which is present in trapped petroleum. Petroleum accumulations in subsiding basins can be thought of as “data archives” within which stored information can help us to understand aspects of hydrocarbon formation and migration. This information can impart a time‐resolved picture of hydrocarbon migration in a basin in response to processes associated with progressive burial, particularly in the context of the occurrence and periodic activity of faults.
