Abstract

Organic geochemical data show that Cenozoic rocks on Kodiak Island, in Albatross basin, and under the continental slope generally contain less than 0.5 wt. % organic carbon. Moreover, kerogen from all rocks analyzed is predominantly (60 to 100%) herbaceous; woody and coaly kerogens are present in secondary (20 to 40%) amounts. Most strata in shelf basins are thermally immature, however. Eocene and Oligocene strata which probably floor the shelf basins, are mature on the basis of comparison with coeval strata onshore. Eocene and Oligocene rocks have poor reservoir properties; the best reservoirs are probably in U. Miocene or Pliocene and younger rocks.- from Author
