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 the opening of the Makassar Straits is commonly agreed by many authors, … Lanjutkan membaca New constraints from wells penetrating the basement and oils discovered in Eocene section

The South Makassar Strait mass transport complex

  Hi all!  In a deep-water environment, mass transport complexes (MTCs), products of mass transportation processes, often dominate the basin stratigraphy, and are intercalated  with turbidite deposits (Dykstra et al., 2011).  MTCs are commonly large enough to be geohazards, and the largest can be tsunami genic (e.g., Watts, 1998, 2003; Wright and Rathje, 2003; Mosher et al., 2010; Yamada et al., 2011). MTCs became of interest to oil and … Lanjutkan membaca The South Makassar Strait mass transport complex
