Petroleum Source Rocks of the Onshore Interior Salt Basins, North Central and Northeastern Gulf of Mexico Ernest A. Mancini1, Peng Li1; Donald A. Goddard2; Ronald K. Zimmerman3 1 Center for Sedimentary Basin Studies and Department of Geological Sciences, University of Alabama, Box 870338, Tuscaloosa, AL 35487-0338 2 Center for Energy Studies, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA 70803 3 Louisiana Geological Survey, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA 70803 Abstract Understanding the burial and thermal maturation histories of the strata in the onshore interior salt basins of the north central and northeastern Gulf of Mexico area is critical in petroleum source rock identification and characterization. The burial and thermal maturation histories of the strata in these basins and subbasins are consistent with the rift-related geohistory of these features.
