On the basis of the TOC (Total Organic Carbon), the Lockatong formation was deposited in a reducing environment in the deep NW part of the basin, which is favorable to the accumulation of organic matter. However, the Lockatong formation of the SE border of the basin was deposited in oxic conditions that prevented the preservation of organic matter if there is any. The…
