The Weiden Basin is a sedimentary basin, located in southeastern Germany, containing up to 2800 metres of Upper Carboniferous-Lower Permian fluvial-lacustrine sediments, including black shales, coal beds and sandstones. In 1989, the Weiden-1 geothermal well was drilled by the municipality of Weiden and, following analysis, indicated the presence of oil in the Permian sandstones. A core, bleeding of oil, was recovered from the well.
