Production of hydrocarbons from unconventional reservoirs is one of the immediate problems which petroleum industry faces. The Assel-Arta Lower Permian deposits of the Astrakhan arch seem promising for oil and gas production. However, there are difficulties for seismic work conducting due to impermeable properties of salt layers; therefore industrial hydrocarbon accumulations were underestimated. In the current research, we have applied organic geochemistry methods for assessment of the generation potential of Lower Permian organic matter, as well as the overmature subsalt deposits. The molecular composition analyses of rock extracts indicated that the host rocks and extractable organic matter were syngenetic.
