Fault-related fold models that illustrate the geometry and kinematic development of petroleum traps and structures are frequently used to assist basin exploration and development of structurally complex oil fields. Worldwide, several petroleum-rich provinces are situated in convergent strike-slip settings with adjacent convergent structures that are commonly petroleum traps.

The northeastern Brooks Range of northern Alaska is an active, north-directed fold-and-thrust belt that is advancing on the Barrow arch and the north-facing passive margin of the Arctic Basin. Density logs, leak-off tests, and mud-weight profiles from 57 wells from the northeastern North Slope were used to determine the magnitude of the present-day in situ stresses and document significant regional lateral and vertical variations in relative stress magnitude.
