The uppermost Ediacaran to lowermost Cambrian sediments of the Lublin-Podlasie Basin as a potential source rock formation for hydrocarbons.
S u m m a r y. In the present contribution we examine possible role of deposits of the Białopole, Lublin, Włodawa and Mazowsze Formations (uppermost Ediacaran to lowermost Cambrian), as well as their presumed lateral equivalents, developed in the Lublin-Podlasie region as a potential source rock for hydrocarbons. The analysed sediments contain marine kerogen of algal and cyanobacterial origin, i.e., predominantly oil prone. In some parts of the analysed area recent TOC could reach 0.65%, however, primary TOC could be significantly higher, as it is indicated by relatively high maturity of the hydrocarbons. Quality of potential source rock increases towards SW. The analysed potential source rock could be, at least partly, responsible for oil and gas shows, commonly observed in the Lower and Middle Cambrian sandstone horizons.
