Shale is a rock that has been formed from the compression of mud ove

The soft calcareous shale weathers quickly and exposes fossils, most of which have been replaced by calcite or pyrite, or a combination of these. Fossils from the shale were first studied by Grace Anne Stewart (1927), who described all species that had been assembled at The Ohio State University since the opening of the quarry. ...karbonatnya terdapat shale dan calcareous shale yang diendapkan pada laut dalam dan berkembang di daerah platform dan tinggian (Bishop, 2001). Produksi karbonat berjalan dengan baik pada masa sekarang dan menghasilkan pengendapan dari batugamping. Keduanya berada pada platforms di pinggiran dari cekungan dan reef yang berada padaIf large dissolution pores develop, organic-rich calcareous shales might become the optimal shale oil reservoirs, referred to as self-generation and self-storage shale oil reservoirs. Therefore, siliceous-rich and organic-rich calcareous shales are considered favorable reservoirs for shale oil in the Dongying Sag, Bohai Bay Basin.The Beida Member consists of a thick sequence of greenish gray to dark gray shale, with calcareous shale and marl intercalations.
