Abstract

The main petrological factors that control occurrences and properties of oil shales are depositional environments, organic sources, diagenesis and maturation. The present studies on organic petrography, organic geochemistry and their interrelationships provide insights into these controls and lead to improved methods of characterisation and classification of oil shales and other organic matter-rich rocks.
