Özet:Iskenderun Bay is the extension of the Adana Basin and is a convenient place for hydrocarbon exploration in terms of its formation mechanism. It is necessary to find rocks that can display lithological properties of source, reservoir and cover rocks in the mechanism of oil formation. There are formations in reservoir and cover rock lithology in İskenderun basin. Kızıldere formation, which is the main rock, has gray-colored sandstone claystone sequences. Sandstones are 10-50 cm thick and claystones 2-30 cm thick. Stratified gypsium levels are observed at the top of the succession of sandstone and claystone and the thickness of the layers is between 5 and 15 cm. The hydrocarbon production of Kızıldere Formation clay was found by calculating the amount of TOC (Total Organic Carbon) and the average value was 0.56%. In addition, TOC values in the region are higher in the north and north east of the region and decrease in the south. The sandstones in the region where the tectonic fractures are abundant due to MisisAndırın systems are reservoir rocks, and the evaporitic units known as Haymaseki formation are cover rocks.
