Geology

  • The Seria field is located on an anticline that straddles the present day coastline. The structure is part of an east-northeasterly trending area of uplift, which extends from Miri in Sarawak to the Danau area. The internal structure of the anticline is very complex, resulting from a structural history in which both loading-driven deltaic tectonics and basement-controlled tectonics have played major roles.
