...Colin N. Waters; Christopher H. Vane; Simon J. Kemp; Richard B. Haslam; Edward Hough; Vicky L. Moss-Hayes Abstract The Carboniferous Bowland Shale Formation of the UK is a proven hydrocarbon source rock and currently a target for shale gas exploration. Most existing analysis details lithofacies...

... of the Bowland Shale is hemi-pelagic in origin and is dominated by clay-rich mudstone intercalated with very thin calcareous mudstones ( Chisholm et al . 1988 ). The average thickness of this formation is 150 m (locally reaching 890 m). The upper Bowland Shale, the focus of the current investigation...

... for unconventional hydrocarbon exploration in the basin. The informally termed sequence should not be confused with the shale-prone Bowland Formation, which is a relatively thin stratigraphic interval of late Brigantian–early Pendleian age and only 150 m, or less, thick.

... at temperatures between 40 and 100°C. We interpret each episode of growth as being associated with an increasing flux of formation waters from deep sedimentary basins next to the mineralized platform and an accompanying increase in the precipitation temperatures. Heat is conserved in the fluid as it ascends along...

... and the Bowland Basin. These correlations are made possible by integrating and calibrating sequence boundaries with the biostratigraphical evidence from foraminifers, conodonts and palynomorphs and relating these to the tectonostratigraphical evolution of the basin. It is suggested that the current...
