This article will provide an overview of the current Indian petroleum exploration scenario with special focus on the east coast deepwater basins. An attempt has been made to distinguish the hydrocarbon system and play types for both rift-related and other structural styles using high-quality 2D and 3D seismic imaging information. Integrating the geologic information with state-of-the-art seismic data has generated a large portfolio of play types (e.g., channel-levee complex, lobes, synrift structural closures, and wedge-outs against basement highs) worthy of exploration.
