Özet

This study presents the hydrocarbon source rock potential and organic maturity of the Upper Permian Tozara Formation in the Gazipasa-Sugozu area in the central Taurus region. The Tozara Formation deposited oxic to dysoxic shelf conditions consists of algal limestone and organic matter-rich shales. In order to assess the hydrocarbon source rock potential of the Upper Permian lithologies, two different stratigraphic sections described and sampled for organic geochemical analyses and determination of mineralogical composition.
