This study is focused on the Salaverry Basin, in the forearc of the Peruvian Andes, which contains three oil seeps sampled and analyzed, suggesting at least one active petroleum system within the basin. The development of the basin is controlled by the interaction between the Nazca-Farallon and South American plates, together with Nazca ridge subduction. Seismic stratigraphic analysis calibrated with available well and core data was carried out to understand the spatial-temporal evolution of Cenozoic depositional systems in the basin. As a result, the Cenozoic succession is best subdivided into five second-order sequences (2S1–2S5) composed of nine third-order sequences...
