Changes in past climatic conditions resulted in the formation of various types of source rocks, such as lacustrine evaporites, freshwater mudstones and coal-bearing formations (Liu et al., 1985), all of which are excellent sources of crude oil in China. The lacustrine evaporitic formations in eastern China have been studied for their petroleum generative potential (e.g.
