Tectonic Evolution and Sedimentation of South China Sea Region

26-27 May 2015
Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia
Sponsored By:

The interaction of the three major lithospheric plates of Eurasian, Indo-Australian and Pacific-Philippines Plates makes the South East Asian region to be one of the most complex areas of Cenozoic plate activity. The South China Sea region is centrally located in this converging plate system. It is tectonically a complex area and gained strong interests for different geoscience research projects and exploration for many years. The sedimentary basins developed in the margin of this region are also tectonically controlled. Different models, theories and concepts were introduced to explain the geology of the area. However, limited data may constrain the development of the geological understanding of the region.

This two-day workshop will bring together the key knowledge holders of the region and give the opportunities to those who are interested to exchange ideas. The objective of the workshop is to provide a regional picture of the geology and tectonic of the region, understand the knowledge gap and hopefully provide a steer for future research projects.

This workshop will be suitable for regional geologists and explorationists seeking to develop a broader and deeper understanding of South China Sea regional geology, tectonics, basin evolution and petroleum systems.
