Based on the shale sedimentary background, geochemical characteristics, reservoir characteristics and gas content etc., we analyse the formation conditions of shale oil and gas and the reservoir forming pattern, and select the favorable exploration area. The results show that the thickness of member 3 in the study area is large, commonly between 100-500m. The organic carbon mass fraction is in the range of 0.1%-6% with an average of 2.91%. Thermal maturity of organic matter is low with an average value of 0.6%. The reservoir space is mainly inter-granular pore and dissolved pore. The brittle mineral content is high such as quartz and carbonate rocks, so it has certain fragility. Furthermore, the results of isothermal absorption show that shale has high performances of gas absorption, and the total gas content is 0.65-5.11m3/t, with an average value of 2.32%. Finally, through the multi-factors superposition method of shale oil and gas accumulation conditions, we believe the Niuju-Changtan subsag in the north and south of Jiazhangsi-Erjiegou subsag is a favorable area for oil and gas exploration in the Eastern Sag of Liaohe Depression. ©, 2015, Science Press.
