      Since the middle Miocene, a series of northeastward unidirectionally migrating canyons (UMCs) have developed in the Baiyun Sag, Pearl River Mouth Basin. Seven closely spaced submarine canyons have been investigated in detail under the integrated analysis of 2D/3D seismic and well data. Five architectural elements of canyon-fill deposits are identified: basal lag (BL), slump and debris-flow deposits (SDFDs), canyon confined sheets (CCSs), laterally inclined packages (LIPs) and ...

      The Yinggehai Basin is located in the triangle between the Sunda block, South China block, and the South China Sea and is an interesting target for in situ stress investigation, not only because of its specific tectonic position but also due to its abnormally high pore pressures. Magnitudes and orientations of in situ stress were directly constrained by measurements operated in the vertical boreholes that were drilled in the Yinggehai Basin. Gradients and magnitudes of the least ...

      More than 10 gas pools have been discovered since 1983 in the shallow-water region of the Pearl River Mouth (PRM) Basin and the Qiongdongnan (QDN) Basin, offshore South China Sea. Gases produced from the QDN basin are characterized by high contents of benzene and toluene and relatively heavy δ13C2 values (−25 to −27‰). The associated condensates have a high abundance of bicadinanes and oleanane, providing a good correlation with the coal-bearing sequence of the Oligocene Yacheng ...

      A series of short and steep unidirectionally migrating deep-water channels, which are typically without levees and migrate progressively northeastward, are identified in the Baiyun depression, Pearl River Mouth Basin. Using three-dimensional seismic and well data, the current study documents their morphology, internal architecture, and depositional history, and discusses the distribution and depositional controls on the bottom current–reworked sands within these channels. ...

      The Cenozoic Yinggehai-Song Hong and Qiongdongnan Basins together form one of the largest Cenozoic sedimentary basins in SE Asia. Detail studying on the newly released regional seismic data, we observed their basin structure and stratigraphy are clearly different. The structure of the NW–SE elongation of the Yinggehai-Song Hong Basin is strongly controlled by the strike–slip faulting of steep Red River Fault. And the basement is covered by heavy sediments from the Red River. However, ...

      A total of 225 rock samples and 37 oil samples from the Beibuwan Basin, South China Sea, were analyzed with geochemical and organic petrological techniques to evaluate the Eocene lacustrine source rocks and investigate controls on their properties and the distribution of different oil families in the basin. Two types of organic facies are recognized in the Liushagang Formation (LS). The first organic facies is algal-dominated and mainly occurs in the organic-rich, laminated mudstones of ...

      Although the huge potential of the northern South China Sea deepwater basins has been proven by a series of discoveries that followed the exploration breakthrough of well LW 3-1-1, recent drilling and other studies have demonstrated the uniqueness and complicated nature of hydrocarbon accumulations of the deepwater basins there. Based on a review of previous work and the latest exploration activities and studies, the purpose of this paper is to discuss the critical controls for ...

      The Yudongzi terrane is featured by well-preserved lithologic outcrops of basement rocks, including the ~2.7 Ga tonalite-trondhjemite-granodiorite (TTGs), ~2.5 Ga potassic granites, Neoarchean supracrustal rocks and ~1.85 Ga amphibolites. The TTG rocks contain ~2.8 Ga inherited/xenocrystic zircons, which indicates the existence of ancient rocks in the magma source. Most zircon grains in the TTG rocks have chondrite-like Hf isotopic compositions, indicative of derivation of magmas from ...

      The Plio-Quaternary unidirectionally migrating channels (UMCs) and contourites in the northern slope of the South China Sea were investigated in this paper using seismic data. The UMCs include thalweg deposits (TDs) and laterally migrating deposits (LMDs), which result from the interaction between gravity flow and contour current. The LMDs migrating directions are northeast (NE) and west-southwest (WSW) and also display weak seismic reflection and obvious multi-stages. By contrast, the ...

      The Pearl River Mouth Basin (PRMB) and Qiongdongnan Basin (QDNB) are oil and gas bearing basins in the northern margin of the South China Sea (SCS). Geothermal survey is an important tool in petroleum exploration. A large data set comprised of 199 thermal conductivities, 40 radioactive heat productions, 543 measured geothermal gradient values, and 224 heat flow values has been obtained from the two basins. However, the measured geothermal gradient data originated from diverse depth range ...

      Multi-phase deepwater fan systems have formed in the Baiyun Sag of the Pearl River Mouth Basin on the northern margin of the South China Sea since the beginning of the Miocene. Integrated analysis of 2D/3D seismic, well log, core, and biostratigraphic data shows that the early Miocene Pearl River deepwater fan deposits consist of four 3rd-order sequences, SQ23.8, SQ21, SQ17.5 and SQ16.5. Each of them is bounded by regional discontinuity surfaces (3rd-order sequence boundaries). Of ...

      A combination of detrital zircon U-Pb geochronology and rare earth element geochemistry was employed to investigate the “source to sink” pathways of Eocene−lower Miocene strata in the northern South China Sea (SCS) taking into account the evolution of the surrounding drainage systems in comparison to the basin sediments. Drastic provenance transformation on the SCS sedimentary patterns has been first discovered that source of Central Vietnam was replaced by Pearl River networks. Rapidly ...

      The late Cretaceous to early Oligocene strata in the northern continental margin of the South China Sea (SCS) are significant for understanding the contemporaneous continental rifting of the margin prior to the opening of the central SCS oceanic basin. Using new seismic and drilling data, combined with previous results, we have identified three episodes of rifting from the late Cretaceous to early Oligocene based on analyses of major unconformities, tectonostratigraphic units, and ...

      The variations of lithostratigraphy, foraminifera, geochemical elements, and organic biomarkers in well XK1 from the Xisha (Paracel) Islands reveal the history of carbonate platform development since the early Miocene in the South China Sea. Our results indicate that reef growth was more active in the middle Miocene than in any earlier periods, decreased in the late Miocene, revitalized in the Pliocene, and active again in the Pleistocene interglacial periods. Unlike those limestone-rich ...

      Integration of 2D and 3D seismic data from the Qiongdongnan Basin along the northwestern South China Sea margin has enabled the seismic stratigraphy, seismic geomorphology and emplacement mechanisms of eight separate, previously undocumented, mass–transport complexes (MTCs) to be characterized. These eight MTCs can be grouped into two types:(1) Localized detached MTCs, which are confined to submarine canyons and cover hundreds of km2, consist of a few tens of km3 remobilized sediments ...
