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 […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
