The Oriente Basin is part of the retro-arc foreland basin system that developed in the zone of transition between the Central Andes and the Northern Andes since Late Cretaceous times. It is deformed by thick-skinned tectonics related to the inversion of pre-Cretaceous extensional fault systems, which have broken the basin into three tectonic domains during three mean periods of inversion (Late Cretaceous–Palaeocene, Early Eocene and Miocene). The northern part of the present-day Sub-Andean wedge-top corresponded, during the Late Cretaceous, to the forebulge depozone.
