Late Jurassic (Late Oxfordian-Early Volgian) sediments exposed across a wide area of East Greenland are dominated by organic-rich mudstones and sandy mudstones and reach a maximum thickness of 500 m. The facies are characterized by parallel-laminated, generally unbioturbated mudstones, in some cases containing thin sandstone laminae. Deposition occurred in an offshore shelf environment, with water depths difficult to constrain. In the northern sections, heterolithic, sandier units occur at the base of the mudstone succession, marking a gradual transition from the underlying shallow-marine sandstones. Mudstones in the south (Milne Land-Jameson Land) are more oil prone, with greater dilution by terrestrially...
