Three out crop samples from Dharangi area of Upper Indus Basin were investigated to determine hydrocarbon composition, thermal maturity, type of organic matter and generative potential. TOe values determined by both wet combustion titration and pyrolysis methods suggest good to excellent source rock potential for sediments namely B and e, whereas these values show marginal to fair source rock potential for sample A. Rock-Eval pyrolysis was carried out in order to determine maturity, type of kerogen and potential to generate liquid or gaseous hydrocarbons. Which suggest that samples A and B contain type ill kerogen and is gas prone; while sample e shows excellent accumulation of free and pyrolyzable hydrocarbons. It contains type II kerogen and is oil prone.
