Rock eval pyrolysis is instrumental in rapid evaluation of maturation and source rock characteristics by providing vital information about the quantity, type and thermal maturity of organic matter. The Ib-Valley coal deposits have been characterized for their source rock potentiality and thus to explore the chances of their involvement in hydrocarbon generation.
