With the establishing of europium concentration in the organic part of rocks (Eu--1ppm) and value of light-weight carbon composition (-32[per thousand]), we can state with high degree of assurance that the main phase of oil and gas generation takes place in sedimentary rocks and buried organic matter and therefore these sedimentary rocks do generate oil and gas.
