Abstract

SE Anatolia hosts the most important oilfields and asphaltite deposits in Turkey. Here, we report on the organic geochemical characteristics of crude oil samples from four wells (Yolacan-1,.Camurlu-28, B. Kozluca-22 and D. Sinirtepe-1) located to the west of Mardin city, one oil from a well (Ozluce-1) to the north of Batman city, and asphaltite samples from the Avgamasya. Herbol and Seridahle localities.
