Sargelu Formation is one of the major petroleum source rocks in Iraq and the Middle East. In an effort to build on the previous work and add new interpretations, this investigates selected outcrops, bore holes, and crude oil samples from different localities in Iraqi Kurdistan. Sargelu Formation has rather uniform lithology with variable thickness throughout Iraqi Kurdistan. The thickness progressively decreases from about 485 m west of the Tigris River in the Mosul area toward north where it… 

PETROLEUM POTENTIALITY AND PETROPHYSICAL EVALUATION OF THE MIDDLE-JURASSIC SARGELU FORMATION, NORTHERN IRAQ
