The authors would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused in the below corrections. Correction 1: A new affiliation “b Polish Geological Institute, ul. Rakowiecka 4, 00–975 Warszawa, Poland” is added to the author group. Correction 2: Revised acknowledgement. Acknowledgements: We dedicate this paper to the memory of Dr Cezary Grelowski (†), an excellent petroleum geochemist. After finishing his studies he worked in the Piła Branch of the Polish Oil and Gas Company (PGNiG SA) for the rest of his life. Being fascinated with his work and new geochemical concepts, Cezary was a fantastic partner in the field and laboratory. Having a predisposition to scientific work he would approach difficult problems with unconventionally disputing the erudition and profound knowledge of the matter. Dr Cezary Grelowski was a cordial, obliging, friendly person, and remained an optimist, never despairing in his work on his passion – organic geochemistry! His credo was knowledge, hard work and helpfulness, till the end, and as such a person he will remain in our memory. We also dedicate this paper to Dr Franz Kockel (†), for his outstanding and successful engagement for developing collaboration between geoscientists from the Central European Basin area. Understanding geology is only possible in a holistic way – a basic principle exemplified by Franz Kockel. It was his heartfelt wish to share his experience in regional geology with colleagues from neighbouring countries, especially from Central Europe. Some crude oil samples (Poland) were kindly obtained from GeoMark Research (Houston). Shell Exploration and Production is thanked for partial financial support and ENGIE for permission to publish the results. The study of some Polish oils has also been financially supported by a statutory research project (no. granted by the AGH University of Science and Technology, Kraków. We thank Jürgen Poggenburg for discussion, Monika Weiβ, Adam Kowalski, James Williams and Alison Kuhl for help with instruments and Andrzej Gąsiewicz for suggestions. We also wish to thank the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), UK, for partial funding of the mass spectrometry facilities at Bristol (contract no. R8/H10/63). Finally, we acknowledge constructive and helpful comments of an associate editor Barry J. Katz, Benedikt Lerch, Joseph Curiale and two anonymous reviewers, which improved the quality of our manuscript. M.S. was supported by a Mobility Plus programme post-doctoral fellowship of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education (no. DPN/MOB20/I/2011). R.D.P. acknowledges the Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award (UK). Correction 3: Revised Fig. 9. [Figure presented]
