Geochemical characteristics of source rock in Tu Chinh-Vung May basin
The paper presents the characteristics of source rock sequences in Tu Chinh-Vung May basin, the offshore deep-water zone in the continental shelf of Vietnam. Oil discovery in Block 136 is an important information that affirms the hydrocarbon potential of Tu Chinh-Vung May basin as well as the sovereignty of Vietnam in the East Sea. Geochemical analysis of the oil samples in the source rock taken from the wells in Tu Chinh-Vung May basin showed the presence of Oligocene and lower Miocene shale source rocks. This paper also mentions the Oligocene source rock that has the coal/coaly shale potential.
