(1) ArcGIS database of source rocks across Gondwana Continents and Margins (South America, African, Arabian Peninsula, India and Australia) including basinal, stratigraphic, sedimentological, and geochemical attributes (e.g. TOC, Ro, kerogen type, pyrolysis, HC type, etc.) compiled from EGI’s proprietary data archive, DSDP-ODP sites as well as from other technical publications.

(2) ArcGIS maps highlighting distribution of source rocks in space and through geologic history.


An appraisal of organic-rich and thermally mature sedimentary rocks lies at the base of the petroleum system analysis for both conventional (migrated) and unconventional (self-sourced) hydrocarbon plays. A quantitative knowledge of the distribution of source rocks in space and through time has important implications not only for the inventory of rich source-rock formations but also evaluating the geologic conditions favorable for source-rock sweet-spots and the generation of oil and gas in a basin.
