Özet

In the Sinop Basin, a thick Liassic to Quaternary sedimentary section is exposed. A Lower Cretaceous- aged Caglayan Formation crops out in the basin and consists of claystone, siltstone, sandstone, marl, and black-coloured shale that exhibits a fair to good source rock potential. An oil seep from the Caglayan Formation is located in the Ekinveren region of the Sinop Basin.
