Multiply substituted isotopologues (or ‘clumped isotopes’) represent a novel stable isotope technique that offers a versatile and powerful geothermometer. Being able to extract reliable temperature information from any carbonate phase significantly improves the petroleum geologist’s ability to reconstruct the thermal history of petroleum basins, or to better constrain diagenetic transformations in reservoir units.
