N2 - The paper presents the results of the petrographic and organic geochemical studies of a jet sample recovered from a Mid-Triassic carbonate succession from the West Balkan tectonic zone in Bulgaria. Total organic carbon contents (TOC=92 % daf) and high vitrinite reflectance (Ro=1.9 %) indicate semi-anthracite coalification rank. Very high T max (577 °C) and low HI (~10 mg HC/g TOC) further support the overmature organic matter. Extractable organic matter is characterized by high portions of NSO compounds and asphaltenes (>75 %). Hydrocarbons constitute about 20 % and are characterized by the predominance of the saturated hydrocarbons over the aromatics. n-Alkanes distribution, dominated by short-chain compounds (n-C17-18), is consistent with the woody origin of the jet and the thermal maturity of the organic matter.
