... gently and for whatever cause, as a high on the sea or lake bottom during the general span of time when sediments were being deposited in the region. Specifically, we are interested in those highs that were synchronous with the petroliferous sediments. The basic concept of this oil habitat...

These structures are present in Foz do Amazonas, Potiguar, Sergipe-Alagoas (in marginal areas, adjacent to the current limit of the basin), Recôncavo...

In highs of tectonic origin, structural growth may affect not only the accumulation of petroleum generated from penecontemporaneous sediments, but also...

The youngest recorded sediments belonging to this succession seen during our fieldwork are Middle Devonian carbonate sea-mounts, that reach over 4 km across and >1000m high. Neither the base nor...

...S. L. Mason ABSTRACT The distribution of the Rumanian oil fields is governed by lines of folding related to the major Carpathian overthrust faulting. Along these lines of folding, the production tends to focus around salt masses that form local “highs.” The source of the salt is unknown. Its rise...

The shallow basement along the eastern basin margin was a structural and topographic high during the Miocene, underpinning shallow marine environments collectively referred to as the Gabilan shelf ( Figure 3 ). Water depths plummeted dramatically to bathyal depths southwest of the shelf into the basin...
