Summary:A century stratigraphic investigation of the oil-and gas-bearing Yanchang Formation in the Ordos Basin has generated numerous schemes of stratigraphic subdivision and correlation. For the purpose of oilfield development, the subdivision of oil-and gas-bearing sequence should be based on lithostratigraphy. The Yanchang Group includes sediments deposited in lacustrine and fluvial environments in the middle-late Triassic Period in the Ordos Basin. We propose that the oil-and gas-bearing sequence of the Yanchang Group can be subdivided into ten oil-and gas-bearing formations (Chang1-Chang10). Of these formations, the Chang-2 can be subdivided into three oil and gas-bearing members (Chang12-Chang32). The Chang-12 oil member can be further divided into three compound oil and gas-bearing layers and several single layers. The detailed stratigraphic study of the Chang-1112 oil member is a key to the oilfield development in the area.
