The Eocene Green River Formation of Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming contains the largest oil shale deposits in the world. Oil shale, despite the name, does not actually contain oil, but rather a type of organic matter called kerogen, a precursor of oil that is converted to a type of crude oil when heated to about – ° C. Sometimes in great abundance, 28,bisnorhopane has been found in a few important source rocks and related oils (Monterey Formation, Kimmeridge Clay). It is probably of microbial origin. Because bisnorhopane is most common in sulfur-rich environments, its origin may have to do with bacteria that participate in the sulfur cycle.
