Abstract

Highlights

• Total amount of generated biogenic methane is estimated at ~3100 Gt.
• Total amount of generated thermogenic methane is estimated at ~1,560 Gt.
• The Maykop formation is partially productive in the central basin and not yet fully productive towards the basin peripherals.

A new numerical model reconstructing the depositional history (98–0 Ma) of the Western Black Sea sub-basin is presented. The model accounts for changing boundary conditions (i.e. water depth, bottom water temperature, heat flow evolution over time) and estimates the rates and total amounts of the in-situ biogenic methane generation and thermally-driven organic matter maturation in the source rocks. The overall thermogenic and biogenic gas generation predicted by the model is estimated at ~1560 Gt and ~3100 Gt, respectively.
