The modern continental slope offshore Brunei is an outstanding example of the relationship between syndepositional structure, slope accommodation space, and sediment dispersal systems. The bathymetric profile is a “stepped slope” characterized by elongate, structurally controlled mini-basins, in contrast to the elliptical salt withdrawal “intraslope” basins of the Gulf of Mexico. Progressive basinward thrusting, caused by updip sediment loading of the Baram delta and regional tectonics, divides the area into alternating thrust-cored structures and elongate, shelf-margin parallel mini-basins 2-10 km in width and 20-60 km in length. The dominant types of accommodation space are healing and bypass phase slope accommodation...
