The Woodford shale is one of several organic rich ???black??? shales of late Devonian and early Mississippian age present in basins of the North American craton. Where thermally mature, these black shales are economically important as hydrocarbon source rocks. The Woodford shale is widely regarded as a major source rock in the Anadarko basin. This report describes regional depositional trends and organic carbon content of the Woodford shale as evidenced by wire line logs in the Oklahoma portion of the Anadarko basin.
