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
This study indicates the source rock evaluation and reservoir properties of the Middle-Jurassic Sargelu Formation in two selected sections (well Atrush-3 and Warte outcrop) northern Iraq. The well
ASSESSMENT THE HYDROCARBON POTENTIALITY OF THE MIDDLE JURASSIC SARGELU FORMATION, NORTHERN IRAQ
The Middle Jurassic Sargelu Formation is evaluated for its hydrocarbon generation potential in three wells near Duhok Governorate, Northern Iraq using ten borehole cutting samples analyzed by
Source Rock Evaluation and Lateral Changes in Thermal Maturity of the Sargelu Formation (Middle Jurassic) in Kurdistan Region-Northern Iraq
In this study, source rock characteristics and lateral changes in thermal maturity of the Sargelu Formation (Middle Jurassic) in three outcrops were studied. The formation’s outcrops can be found in
Generation and expulsion history of oil-source rock (Middle Jurassic Sargelu Formation) in the Kurdistan of north Iraq, Zagros folded belt: Implications from 1D basin modeling study
Abstract Middle Jurassic Sargelu Formation is an important oil-source rock in the Iraqi Kurdistan oilfields, northern Zagros Fold Belt. The Sargelu source rock is characterised by high organic matter

Source Rock Evaluation and 1-D Basin Modelling Approach for the Sargelu Formation, Atrush-2 Well, Kurdistan Region-Iraq
The present study focuses on source rock evaluation of the Sargelu Formation by using core chips of rocks collected from well Atrush-2, Duhok, Kurdistan Region-Iraq. The Rock-Eval pyrolysis and
Microfacies Analysis and Depositional Environment of the Sargelu Formation (Middle Jurassic) from Kurdistan Region, Northern Iraq
The depositional sedimentary environment and petrology of the Sargelu Formation (of Late Toarcian–Late Bathonian age) is presented based on hand specimen descriptions, petrographic thin sections, and
Rock-Eval analysis and organic petrographical characterization of the Upper Jurassic Naokelekan Formation, northern Mesopotamian basin, Kurdistan Region-Iraq
The aim of this study is to assess the type, thermal maturity and the petroleum generation potential of the Upper Jurassic Naokelekan Formation, occurring across the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, by
ORGANIC GEOCHEMICAL ASSESSMENT OF JURASSIC POTENTIAL SOURCE ROCK FROM ZAB-1 WELL,
The studied samples were collected from Butmah, Adaiyah, Mus, and Sargelu formations in Zab-1 Well which lies about 25 Km to the south of Kalak town, Erbil Governorate. The hydrocarbon potential
Organic geochemistry of oil seeps from the Abu-Jir Fault Zone in the Al-Anbar Governorate, western Iraq: Implications for early-mature sulfur -rich source rock
Abstract Organic geochemical methods were performed on four oil seep samples collected from the Abu-Jir Fault Zone (AJFZ) in the Al-Anbar Governorate, western Iraq. These oil seeps have undergone
