Welcome to our blog

Bumi_ino

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!

Trace of the translated subduction in Central Java and its role on the Paleogene basins and petroleum system development

Armandita_2011_jcm

This is a note about an abstract presented at the JCM MAKASSAR 2011, the 36th HAGI and 40th IAGI Annual Convention and Exhibition. A NW – SE trending Pamanukan Cilacap Fault Zone (PCFZ) has been interpreted to become barrier between Neogene deep water basins in western and central Java. The PCFZ is interpreted to have translated the eastern extension of SW-NE pre-Tertiary subduction zone ±200 km to the southeast. These tectonics models suggest that the prolific hydrocarbon zone associated with Sundaland, originally developed to the east of the Northwest Java Basin (NWJB) has been translated to the southeast along the PCFZ. This regional tectonic reconstruction can be a possible alternative model to explain the distribution of numerous hydrocarbon seep in the Neogene deep water North Serayu and Banyumas basins.

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.

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

Armandita_makassar_seg2011

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 deep water Makassar Strait Basins.

Structural Style and Evolution of the Sumatran Forearc Basins

Mukti_2011_ipa

The interesting point of this article, which has been presented at INDONESIAN PETROLEUM ASSOCIATION 35th Annual Convention and Exhibition May 2011 is that the deep seismic reflection data acquired by Western Geco and CGGVeritas have provide new information for understanding the evolution Sumatran forearc basins.

Doubly Vergent Accretionary Wedge Active Tectonics in The Sumatra Subduction Zone

Mukti_2012_neotec ipa

This is an abstract of a talk presented at American Geophysical Union, Fall Meeting 2011. Active deformation along the western margin of the present day Mentawai forearc basin appeared as anticlinal ridges. Beneath the anticlinal ridges, the deformation zone exhibits (1) main backthrust, as the upward continuation of the Mentawai Backthrust in forearc basin, (2) seaward verging imbricated thrusts developed in the accretionary wedge and (3) the landward verging thrust developed in the forearc basin. The landward verging Mentawai Backthrust zone and together with the Frontal Thrusts, formed the doubly vergent active tectonics in the Sumatra subduction system.

Aseismic zone and earthquake segmentation associated with a deep subducted seamount in Sumatra

Singh_seam subd_2011

This article has been published in Nature Geoscience, 2011 . The authors have identified a seamount 3–4 km high and 40 km wide that has been subducted to a depth of 30–40 km below the Sumatra forearc mantle. The seamount has remained intact despite more than 160 km of subduction, and that there is no seismic activity either above or below the seamount. The authors suggest that the subduction of a topographic feature such as a seamount could lead to the segmentation of the subduction zone.
