Abstract

Organic-rich carbonate mudrocks are among the most important petroleum source rocks in the world, sourcing most of the hydrocarbons of Arabia and many other oil provinces. Hydrocarbon generation and migration in organic-rich carbonate source rocks and the governing geological processes have previously been widely discussed. However, only a few studies focus on the early mobilisation of initial bitumen and its relationship to pore space and fracture development during early maturation. We investigated these initial stages in petroleum generation and primary migration in the organic-rich, immature to early mature (
