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

Nias basin, NW Sumatra – new insights into forearc structure and hydrocarbon prospectivity from long-offset 2D seismic data

  Last week, my colleague from TGS, Ian presented a talk in the 38th Indonesian petroleum Association annual meeting. He talked about the structures and hydrocarbon prospectivity of Nias forearc basin, which is situated in the central part of the offshore Sumatra forearc area. 1868 km of newly acquired long offset 2D seismic, covers the area in between Nias and Sumatra mainland. Compare to the … Lanjutkan membaca Nias basin, NW Sumatra – new insights into forearc structure and hydrocarbon prospectivity from long-offset 2D seismic data

Central Java, Indonesia – a “Terra Incognita” in Petroleum Exploration: New Considerations on the Tectonic Evolution and Petroleum Implications

This is a title of an article that has been presented at the IPA Annual Convention and Exhibition 2007. This article reviews the tectonics of Central Java Indonesia. This area shows a conspicuous re-entrant or indentation of its coastline compared to those of the western and eastern parts of Java Island. This indentation is considered to express wrench segmentation of two major Paleogene strike-slip faults … Lanjutkan membaca Central Java, Indonesia – a “Terra Incognita” in Petroleum Exploration: New Considerations on the Tectonic Evolution and Petroleum Implications
