Rifting history of the Makassar Strait: New constraints from wells penetrating the basement and oils discovered in Eocene section — Implications for further exploration of west Sulawesi offshore

Awang H. Satyana* *SKK Migas Abstract The opening mechanism and nature of the basement underlying the North Makassar Straits has been debated for almost thirty years. Two leading opening mechanisms are: tectonic escape through major strike-slip extension and back-arc rifting due to subduction rollback. The basement has been debated as continental or oceanic. This study presents hard data of the North Makassar Straits’ […]

Tectonics, Stratigraphy and Geochemistry of the Makassar Straits: Recent Updates from Exploring Offshore West Sulawesi, Opportunities and Risks

This is a review paper on the tectonics, stratigraphy  and geochemistry of West Sulawesi Offshore, Indonesia. This paper is presented at the 36th IPA meeting. The increase of exploration activity in West Sulawesi Offshore has enhanced our understanding but, it cannot instantly build a thorough knowledge of the petroleum geology of the area. There have […]
