In many compressive zones, there is a risk of undercharged hydrocarbon prospects as a result of timing, that is, the growth of the structure is younger than the main fluid migration phase. The North Ucayali Basin represents a setting of this type, where locating the earliest structures is crucial for well placement. In the North Ucayali Basin, the variable amount of erosion at the top of the structures shows that they are not uniformly recent. Although the growth of early structures may be explained by the reactivation of inherited features during shortening, evaporitic pillows may represent an alternative factor...
