A multi-event tectonic episode that affected the Caribbean and South American Plate boundaries as well as Cenozoic oil generation is based on new structural and geochemical data from the western Falcón Basin, Venezuela. It involves Late Cretaceous to Middle Eocene emplacement of the Lara Nappes followed by Late Eocene to Early Miocene tectonic collapse and graben formation, Middle Miocene inversion and out of sequence thrusting. Oil-source rock correlation of seeps in the northern part of the basin suggests a Cenozoic siliciclastic source rock deposited under suboxic to anoxic conditions. Potential Cenozoic source rocks and Late Cretaceous La Luna Formation...
