  • Summary for the regional tectonics and basin evolution in western SE Asia, running North – South, from Myanmar to Java Island region.
  • Comparison of the geology and petroleum systems of back-arc, fore-arc and fore-deep basins on a regional basis.
  • Recommended play exploration opportunities in both frontier basins and exploration mature basins.
  • Compendium with predictive models addressing the similarities and dissimilarities of petroleum systems in back-arc, fore-arc and fore-deep basins in different tectonic settings prioritized for exploration strategy or as analogs for exploration in other similar basins in the world.
  1. ArcGIS based database including regional tectonic and depositional maps, stratigraphic charts and stratigraphic cross sections for each basin and/or sub-basins, maps of Petroleum system elements and chart, modeled burial and thermal history and hydrocarbon migration and accumulation results, play maps, potential plays, examples and models for basins in trench-slope fore-deep, fore-arc and back-arc settings.
  2. Interim data uploads (2 to 3) during the course of the research.
  3. Meeting presentations and project report (both digital and hardcopy);
  4. Reliable bibliographic database.
  • Summarize the regional tectonics and basin evolution in western SE Asia, running North – South, from Myanmar to Java Island region.
  • Investigate and compare the geology and petroleum systems of back-arc, fore-arc and fore-deep basins on a regional basis.
  • Recommend play exploration opportunities in both frontier basins and exploration mature basins.
  • Summarize the predictive models addressing similarities and dissimilarities of petroleum systems in back-arc, fore-arc and fore-deep basins in different tectonic settings for companies to prioritize exploration strategy or use as analog for exploration in other similar basins in the world.
  1. Collect, compile, archive, synthesize and interpret data from basins in western Southeast Asia corridor from Myanmar to Java.
  2. Conduct basin-wide geological study, tectono-sequence stratigraphic and, depositional analysis;
  3. Analyze basin geohistory and petroleum systems based on regional mapping of geology and petroleum elements, basin modeling, and analysis of discovered fields and a re-examination of failed exploration areas by integrating geology, geophysics, outcrop, wells and geochemistry data
  4. Identify potential new plays by new data interpretation, play fairway mapping and integrated basin analysis and petroleum system study in key data-rich onshore and offshore basins in Western SE Asia; Exploration opportunities in data-poor frontier basins will be predicted through knowledge learned from other already producing analog basins with similar geology.
  5. Compare basin evolution and characteristic hydrocarbon accumulation habitats between back- arc, fore-arc and fore-deep basins in similar and different tectonic settings.
  6. Summarize common petroleum systems for each type of basin and variations of petroleum system models from Indian Ocean subduction-influenced Myanmar to Australia Plate subduction-influenced Java.
  7. Deliver on ArcGIS platform with a written report and documentation.
