Stratigraphy and petroleum prospects of Korea strait and the East China Sea


Stratigraphy and petroleum prospects of Korea strait and the East China Sea



CCOP Technical Bulletin 1(1): 13-27



A collection of 24 dredge samples containing rocks and fossils shows that the Korea strait and the East China Sea are floored mainly by Neogene strata beneath a blanket of Pleistocene and some Recent sediments. The seaward edge of the continental shelf of the East China Sea appears to coincide with an extension of a tectonically folded zone of largely Neogene strata between Kyushu and Taiwan. Most of the oil and gas fields on land in the region are associated with this and other similar folded zones. The nature of the rock samples and the probable continuation of the folded zones beneath the sea floor suggest that the most favorable province for future submarine oil and gas fields is a wide belt along the outer part of the continental shelf.
