摘要Authigenic carbonates from hydrocarbon seeps are unique long-term archives of past fluid flow. The studied samples were collected from Green Canyon block 140 at a water depth of 260 m in the Gulf of Mexico. Petrography, X-ray diffraction, stable isotopes and C-14 dating were applied to assess the evolution of seep activity and potential driving forces. The carbonates are dominated by high-Mg calcite (HMC) and aragonite, with a minor amount of low-Mg calcite (LMC) and dolomite. Petrographically, peloids, clotted microfabric, acicular aragonite and a variable content of bioclasts were observed. Three types of carbonates are recognized. Structure I carbonates, with C-14 ages from 46.5 ka to 25.8 ka BP, are characterized by delta C-13 values from -23.2 parts per thousand to 5.1 parts per thousand, suggesting multiple carbon sources that include thermogenic methane, biodegraded crude oil, seawater and residual CO2 from methanogenesis at greater depth. In contrast, Structure II carbonates formed between 17.6 ka and 11.7 ka BP and have delta C-13 values varying from -22.2 parts per thousand, to -8.8 parts per thousand, suggesting carbon sources similar to those of Structure I carbonates but with a negligible influence of residual CO2 from methanogenesis. In addition, the presence of LMC in this type of carbonate may be associated with brine seepage. Structure III carbonates among the youngest of the samples analyzed with C-14 ages of 1.2 ka BP. These carbonates have the most negative delta C-13 values ranging from -36.1 parts per thousand to -26.8 parts per thousand, suggesting that thermogenic methane is the primary carbon source. The majority carbonates of both Structure I and II are slightly O-18-enriched, which is most likely related to the incorporation of water from dehydration of clay minerals. The considerable range of mineralogical and isotopic variations of the studied carbonates highlights the local control of the seepage flux. It is proposed that factors affecting the activity of hydrocarbon seeps are sea level changes and salt movement. The combination of petrography, stable isotopes, and dating approach used here, highlights that these are valuable tools to assess the variability of past fluid flow at hydrocarbon seeps.
