ABSTRACT

Synrift stratigraphy of the Cenozoic grabens in the West Natuna Basin (WNB) is commonly poorly constrained because few deep wells exist. Stratal slices were produced Previous HitfromNext Hit high-quality Gabus and Belanak three-dimensional (Previous Hit3-DNext Hit) Previous HitseismicNext Hit surveys to image synrift depositional architectures. Using Previous Hit3-DNext Hit Previous HitseismicNext Hit geomorphology, we identified five facies that were used to construct a detailed Previous HitseismicNext Hit stratigraphic interpretation. The interpreted synrift stratigraphy of the WNB shows a strong tectonic control. Previous HitFromNext Hit this type of analysis, potential hydrocarbon system elements can be identified and mapped. Thus, in petroleum exploration situations in which few well Previous HitdataNext Hit exist, Previous Hit3-DNext Hit Previous HitseismicNext Hit geomorphology can be used to provide key stratigraphic insights.
