The article by Peters et al. (2000) presents a new geochemical-sequence stratigraphic model for the middle Miocene and younger rocks in the Kutei basin, east Kalimantan, Indonesia. Peters et al.'s (2000) reinterpretation of the lowstand systems tract containing transported terrigenous source rocks helps to explain the recent offshore discoveries in the Makassar Strait. The work is primarily based on the geochemical fingerprints of oil condensates fitted into a sequence stratigraphic model modified from a previous version by Snedden et al. (1996). It is this sequence stratigraphic framework with which we take issue in this article. The model lacks supportive...
