The Huallaga–Marañon retroforeland basin system of northern Peru is deformed by both thick- and thin-skinned tectonics. The thrust system is complex and resulted from the reactivation of a west-verging Permian fold and thrust belt capped by an important salt detachment. This chapter presents 2-D petroleum modeling from an updated balanced cross section and sequential restoration through the Huallaga–Marañon wedge-top basin. The sequential restoration has been calibrated by thermochronological dating and thickness variations in Cenozoic synorogenic sediments. It shows two important stages of the deformation (Middle Eocene and Late Early Miocene). Late Triassic/Early Jurassic Pucara Group and Late Cretaceous (Raya...
