This paper contains description of calculation of a radiogenic heat production rate in the sedimentary rocks: the sandstones and the mudstones. The radiogenic heat is one of the elements of the surface heat flow. This heat represents the important component in modelling of the oil basins, especially in thermal calculating connected with the source rocks. It is claimed that the production of the radiogenic heat causes increasing of the temperature. That process leads to quick maturation of a kerogen, so the oils production is faster. Radiogenic heat production rate maight be computed on the samples or in the boreholes with using SGR and RHOB logs, according to the suitable equations.
