  • TITLE: Analysis of Selected Oil Shale Samples from El-Lajjun, Central Jordan

    AUTHORS: Hani M. Alnawafleh, Feras Y. Fraige

    KEYWORDS: Oil Shale, Jordan, El-Lajjun, Petrography, TOC, Fissure Assay

    JOURNAL NAME: Geomaterials, Vol.5 No.3, September 8, 2015

    ABSTRACT: The centralJordanpart is rich in bituminous rocks that are known locally as oil shale (OS). These rocks were formed during the Maastrichtian-Palaeocene time. They belong to the Muwaqqar ChalkMarlformation (MCM). El-Lajjun OS deposit is located in relatively thinly populated area. This study presents the results of mineralogical, petrographical and geochemical analyses that are performed on selected surface outcrop oil shale samples from El-Lajjun area in central Jordan. Results show that El-Lajjun OS deposit is considered as a good source of OS resources since its organic matter is quite significant. The bulk rock material is made of carbonate.
