Paper Abstract

It was established that the same type of organic matter was accumulated in ancient salts independently of their ages and mineralogical compositions. The origin of hydrocarbons of salt bitumoids was aquagennic organic matter, which accumulated in restore conditions. Data of alkane, sterane and triterpane distributions in conjunction with other geochemical and geological information were used here.
