Abstract

The Quintuco-Loma Montosa Formation is the largest and most diversified oil-producing carbonate depositional system in the Neuquén Basin. It was mainly deposited during the Early Cretaceous, in an intracratonic embayment of the Andean orogenic belt which extended eastwards over the South American Plate.
