Organic Geochemical Characteristics and Depositional Environments of the Eocene Deposits in the Eastern Black Sea Region, NE Turkey
Type of organic material, thermal maturity, depositional environment, and source rock potential of Eocene aged clastic rocks of the Eastern Black Sea Region were investigated. Based on total organic carbon values, clastic rocks range from weak-good source rock. Samples contain a mixture of Type I–Type III kerogen. Based on T max values, Eocene aged clastic rocks were thermally mature. Moretane/hopane ratio of samples <0.15, 22S/(22S + 22R) homohopane (C32), and 20S/(20S + 20R) sterane (C29) maturity parameters were equal or very close to equilibrium value of oil generation. The deposition environment was transitional marine environment and clastic rocks do not have the potential to form hydrocarbon.
