In terms of Potential Yield values  (Table), the samples are characterized by variation from no oil source rock
to good source rock
The source rock
had been analysed after two shallow wells had been drilled in Agaie and Kudu in Niger State, with aero-magnetic geological mapping done to trap the deposits.
The study notes that units considered to have high probability for essential petroleum system elements from which oil and gas can be technically recovered from source rocks
include the quality and thickness of the source rock
, its organic matter content, thermal maturity, the presence of brittle rock types, adequate depth, structural deformation, and pressure.
jpg The Waipawa and Whangai formations are regarded as high-quality source rocks
that compare technically to successful commercial tight-oil plays in North America, such as the Bakken Shale and Eagle Ford discoveries.
The boom in shale gas in North America has prompted gas-short countries in the Mideast, such as the UAE and Saudi Arabia, to start examining source rocks
in hydrocarbon-rich provinces.
Although the well was dry, the results reconfirmed the presence of Aptian source rock
in the oil window, which was also encountered during the drilling of the Wingat-1 well.
The information collected, particularly in regard to source rock
potential, will be evaluated and may have positive implications for the prospectivity of the basin.
Fika shale is suspected to be the main source rock
in Chad basin (Okosun, 1995).
5) So, through the test analysis of minor elements of the cores, the study the paleo lacustrine sedimental revolution of tertiary Funing Formation of Gaoyou sag in Subei Basin has a significance for the study of both development of the source rock
and reservoirs development, and the exactly dividing the stratigraphic sequences of tertiary Funing formation of Gaoyou sag.
of Seoul, South Korea, acquired the rights in Van Buren County from Source Rock
Energy of Arkansas LLC.
The Triassic of the Yangtze block is not only the thickest sedimentary system, but also one of the few containing either potential source rock
or associated potential reservoir.
Using archive information on the position of several jade source rock
outcrops, it was possible, with some success, to use the ERMapper image processing system to seek and define, pixels with the spectral characteristics of the jade bearing source rock
'training sites' in complex of forsterite marble, tremolite schist, serpentine and granite contact metamorphic limestone skarn terrain.
