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 show the presence of active petroleum systems underneath the volcanic … Lanjutkan membaca Subvolcanic hydrocarbon prospectivity of Java

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 been surprising results, both positive and negative, that were unexpected … Lanjutkan membaca Tectonics, Stratigraphy and Geochemistry of the Makassar Straits: Recent Updates from Exploring Offshore West Sulawesi, Opportunities and Risks

Welcome to our blog

Hi all! Welcome to our blog, Tektonesiana. The name of Tektonesiana is derived from the word tectonics and Indonesia. Tektonesiana represents our ‘passion’ on tectonics of Indonesia. We, Indonesian geologists who share the same interest, use this blog to post articles that represent our works. These articles have been presented in scientific meetings. Some of them also have been published in journals. We have many questions … Lanjutkan membaca Welcome to our blog

Exploration Challenges and Opportunities in Deep Water Makassar Strait Basins, Indonesia : Review of Carbonate Play Based on Sequence Stratigraphy and Seismic Characterization

This work that has been presented SEG Annual Meeting, September 18 – 23, 2011 , San Antonio, Texas overviews the petroleum system model in deepwater Makassar Strait basins. Unsuccessful of six expensive exploration wells in this area is a bit much influence to the activities of exploration in the South Makassar Basin. The authors explained exploration opportunities and challenges in an effort to discover hydrocarbons in the … Lanjutkan membaca Exploration Challenges and Opportunities in Deep Water Makassar Strait Basins, Indonesia : Review of Carbonate Play Based on Sequence Stratigraphy and Seismic Characterization

Structural Reactivation and its Implication on Exploration Play: Case Study of JS-1 Ridge

This work has been presented at INDONESIAN PETROLEUM ASSOCIATION, Thirty-Sixth Annual Convention & Exhibition, May 2012. The authors of this article explained paleotectonic evaluation of the WMO area, and suggests another potential play other than Kujung Formation. Seismic interpretation with some attributes and also ant-track method are applied to strengthen the exploration concept. Another play that is quite interesting should be added to exploration in … Lanjutkan membaca Structural Reactivation and its Implication on Exploration Play: Case Study of JS-1 Ridge
