Abstract

The studied sequence of the Mako-3 well contains mostly Type III kerogen. The high organic carbon content and hydrocarbon potential indicated immature, good gas-prone organic matter in the Nagyalfold Formation, whereas delta front and delta slope depositional facies of the Algyo Formation, as well as prodelta facies of the Szolnok Formation, resulted in poor gas-prone source rocks with low organic carbon content and low hydrocarbon potential. A high proportion of free hydrocarbons and oil indications showed the presence of migrated hydrocarbons in this sequence. Excellent gas-prone Type III kerogen of relatively high hydrogen index, as well as fair oil-prone Type II-III kerogen, were also detected in the Upper Pannonian delta plain sediments. -from Authors
