The Lower Congo Basin is a gravitationally-driven, linked extensional/contractional system, detaching on Aptian salt, in which updip extension is compensated by downdip contraction and lateral flow of salt. Two spatially and temporally distinct phases of deformation are recognized in the Lower Congo Basin, one of Cretaceous age, and one of Oligocene to Recent age. Angola Block 33 is a deep-water block lying entirely within the contractional domain of the Tertiary system. Recently acquired 3D seismic data provide new insights into the structural evolution of contractional salt structures.

Several distinct structural domains are recognized on Block 33. (1)...
