Satyana- —– Berikut ini adalah tautan catatan-catatan Awang H. Satyana yang […]

Subvolcanic hydrocarbon prospectivity of Java

Numerous oil and gas seeps occur on Java Island concealing prospective basin sediments. However, most of this island is covered by volcanic products of Paleogene to Recent times. The volcaniclastic sediments buried the source rocks, burying the source rocks to depths of oil and gas windows. Oil and gas seeps in volcanic areas of Java […]

New constraints from wells penetrating the basement and oils discovered in Eocene section

  The Makassar Strait located between Kalimantan and Sulawesi Islands in Central Indonesia is a north-south orientated seaway, around 700 km long, 125-400 km wide with maximum water depths almost 2500 m. Bathymetrically, the Makassar Strait is divided into the northern and southern depressions and are hence sometimes referred to as the North and South Makassar Basins. While the Paleogene history for […]

Crustal Structures of the Eastern Sundaland’s Rifts, Central Indonesia: Geophysical Constraints and Petroleum Implications

Halo! This is a note about a paper presented in International Geosciences Conference and Exposition in Bali almost 3 years ago. This paper highlights the origin of crustal structures of Eastern Sundaland. Based on evaluation of available seismic, gravity, and magnetic data, the author proposed tectonic interpretation of the areas and the implications for petroleum accumulation. […]
