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 about tectonics of Indonesia, and we want to share them with you. Enjoy our blog!

Tectonic controls on the hydrocarbon habitats of the Barito, Kutei, and Tarakan Basins, Eastern Kalimantan, Indonesia: major dissimilarities in adjoining basins

Satyana

This is a note about an article that explains about the different tectonic styles of Barito, Kutei, and Tarakan Basins during Tertiary and Pleistocene times. Diverse tectonic styles within the producing basins of Kalimantan compel separate exploration approaches to each basin. To discover new opportunities in exploration, the authors pointed out that it is important to understand the structural evolution of neighbouring basins. This article has been published in Journal of Asian Earth Sciences (1999).

Inverted intra arc transtensional deepwater basin in West – Central Java border: New interpretation of basin evolution and its implication to the petroleum system

This article, which has been presented AAPG Annual Conference and Exhibition, New Orleans, Louisiana, April 2010 explains about tectonics of a Tertiary deepwater intra‐arc basin that experienced inversion by thrust faults. Oil seeps along this area may indicate distribution of source rock. The expelled and migrated hydrocarbon could reach in to potential traps and accumulated in reservoirs in these basins. The tectonics and paleogeographic reconstructions of this basin are expected to reveal the characteristics of petroleum systems.
