Abstract

Some 100 core samples of coal and coaly units from the Pliocene succession (Hotamis Formation) were collected from well KK-147, in the southern part of Central Turkey (Karapinar-Konya). 30 samples were screened for total organic carbon (TOC) content. Selected samples were then analyzed by Rock-Eval Pyrolysis. Visual kerogen analysis and vitrinite reflectance measurements were also undertaken. Detailed data from thick Pliocene sediments made it possible to construct an organic facies framework using different zonations.
