Abstract

The Bozbel Formation (Lutetian) of the eastern part of the Sivas Basin, central Anatolia, Turkey, displays a range of lithofacies which vary greatly in thickness. The formation consists of conglomerates, sandstones, mudstones and shales, marls, limestones, and sandy limestones, clayey limestones, tuffites, and volcanic breccias. The aim of this study is to determine the elastic petrofacies of the sandstones and to describe the characteristics of the organic facies and source rocks present in the Bozbel formation.
