The prediction of source rocks is very important to the basin at the initial stage of exploration, among which the description of the source rocks’ spatial distribution and the evaluation of the source rocks’ thickness are the most significant. For most of the oil and gas fields on the land, the prediction and evaluation of source rocks rely on geochemistry analysis. (Nunn J A, Sleep N H, Moore W E, 1985; Cao S, Lerche I, 1989; Contreras A, Torres-Verdin C, Fasnasht T, 2007). But well data is inadequate on the offshore exploration area. Therefore, seismic data and geophysical methods can be applied to improve the prediction accuracy of source rocks.
