, Geology of the coal and petroleum deposits in the Ordos basin, China [microform]: a digest of published literature / by K.Y. Lee U.S. Dept. of the Interior, Geological Survey [Reston, Va.?] Wikipedia Citation. The International Journal of Coal Geology deals with fundamental and applied aspects of the geology and petrology of coal, oil/gas source rocks and shale gas resources. The journal aims to advance the exploration, exploitation and utilization of these resources, and to stimulate environmental awareness as well as advancement of engineering for effective resource . The Ordos Basin is a huge basin in China rich in coal, oil and gas resources. It is almost , km 2 in area and is located on the western margin of the North China Platform ().The basin developed on a stable craton with a stratigraphic thickness generally over m, and up to m in the central by: The Ordos Basin was formed as a result of collision of the Tethys orogen in southwest China with the North China and Yangtz blocks (Li et al., , Liu, ).According to Sun et al. (), the Ordos Basin is an unstable cratonic central r, according to Hsu () and Zhao et al. (), the Ordos Basin is surrounded by mountain chains and its subsidence at different Cited by:

  The Ordos basin is rich in oil and gas resources. The structures in the basin are generally rather gentle. Most of the oil and gas pools already found are belong to the types of lithologic, litho-1 stratigraphic and paleo-geomorphic with thin reservoirs. The geology of oil and gas and the generation and distribution of oil and gas resources in the Ordos basin is analyzed Cited by: Bulletin of Canadian Petroleum Geology (2) coal deposits (2) crust (2) and movable fluids in the tight sandstone oil reservoirs of the Yanchang Formation in the southwestern Ordos Basin, China. Journal: AAPG Bulletin. Publisher. The Ordos Basin, China, is a large petroliferous basin that has been the focus of exploration for many decades, with abundant oil and gas resources successively discovered in the Lower and Upper Palaeozoic and Mesozoic strata (Chen et al., ; He, ; Liu, ; Sun et al., ).Currently, it hosts the largest gas fields discovered in China, with reserves of more than Cited by: 3.

This paper discusses the mineralogy and geochemistry of the No. 6 Coal (Pennsylvanian) in the Junger Coalfield, Ordos Basin, China. The results show that the vitrinite reflectance (%) is lowest and the proportions of inertinite and liptinite (% and %, respectively) in the No. 6 Coal of the Junger Coalfield are highest among all of the Late Paleozoic coals in the Ordos . AbstractThe intracontinental Ordos Basin hosts many large uranium deposits, and its evolution was controlled by the surrounding orogenic belts during the Paleozoic to Mesozoic. Paleocurrent data of the Jurassic Zhiluo Formation reveal that its sedimentary detritus were transported dominantly from southwest to northeast in the basin. However, the detrital zircon age pattern Cited by: 4.   China is the major consumer of coal worldwide, accounting for 50% of the total annual world coal consumption [1] and coal utilization will continue to play a leading role in energy consumption in. The Ordos Basin is the richest area of coal resources in China, which has an important position in China's coal resources prospecting and exploitation. Through the application of coalfield geology and geodynamics, this paper analyzes the distribution of coal resources of the Ordos Basin. It carries out the research in coalfield tectonic zoning, and the coal-bearing area is divided into Cited by: 2.
