Present study perceived that samples have excellent hydrocarbon generation potential and total organic carbon (TOC) content. The pyrolysis temperature (Tmax) indicates that samples are in immature stage (<435°C) for hydrocarbon generation. The hydrogen index (HI) values show that the sample lies in a mixture of Type II–III and Type III kerogen. The plot of HI versus TOC implies that samples fall in fair oil source or gas/oil field. Field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM) and electron dispersive X-ray (EDX) study reveals that the different micro/macro pores and fracture system present mostly in organic substance. In situ gas content values are high enough to produce methane from coal beds.
