High-relief (up to 1670 ft [~510 m]) hydrocarbon columns are trapped by a combination of abutment against the graben margin fault system to the west, basinward slope away from the graben margin to the east, and lateral stratigraphic trapping against interfan fine-grained sediments. Gravel and sand were supplied to the fans by noncohesive debris flows and high-density turbidity currents down an eroded fault scarp from the platform area of...
