Abstract

Using the pyrolysis method, analysis of thermal alteration index and vitrinite reflectance of multiple samples of rocks in the basin, sufficient data were obtained to assess the potential of oil and gas source rocks in the Cote-d'Ivoire basin. The results of the study show that the rocks have from satisfactory to very high organic matter content, which indicates the existence of good conditions for the production and preservation of organic material in the pool. Organic matter is of continental and marine origin and corresponds to type III and type II kerogen. Thermal indicators show that the rocks at the initial and full stage of maturity. These rocks are capable of generating liquid and gaseous hydrocarbons.

Key words:

 

organic matter, source rock, hydrogen index, kerogen, common organic carbons, reflection power of a vitrinite, hydrocarbonic potential and thermal alteration index.
