Transfer Zone Characteristics in No. II Fault Zone and its Control on Petroleum, TaZhong Area


Article Preview

According to interpreted cautiously with 2D and 3D seismic profiles, the typical transfer zone was identified in No.Ⅱ fault zone of TaZhong area, near the TaZhong 46 well of central uplift belt in Tarim basin. Discussed the transfer zone characteristic on the basis of seismic interpretation, it’s clearly triangle transfer zone and caused by strike-slip affection. Using structural analysis method, it is indicated that the transfer zone composed by thrusting-detachment faults. According to structural evolution analysis, the transfer zone had been affecting constantly by transpression during the caledonian-late hercynian, Analyzing geologic setting and regional geology characteristic, TaZhong No.Ⅱ fault zone are sinistral transpression strike-slip fault. Analysis the control action of transfer zone’s for trap, reservoir, hydrocarbon migration and sedimentary, the Transfer zone have the advantage target for oil and gas exploration.
