Synopsis of the geologic formations of the western part of the Maracaibo Basin, Venezuela by Hollis Dow Hedberg Download PDF EPUB FB2

Regional geologic and tectonic setting of the Maracaibo supergiant basin, western Venezuela. The Maracaibo basin lies mainly in northwestern Venezuela and occupies the V-shaped depression between the diverging Andes de Merida and Sierra de Perija, two offshoots of the main Cordilleran system of South America.

On the southwest the basin extends slightly into eastern Colombia. The Maracaibo Basin of western Venezuela is considered one of the most prolific petroleum producing regions in the world.

The Cretaceous interval consists mainly of fine-grained clastic and carbonate sediments deposited during a period of passive margin by: 1. The Venezuelan land area embraces somesq km lying between the Equator and latitude 10 degrees north.

The western part of the country comprises two northerly trending mountain chains which are the result of the bifurcation of the Andes. Between them lie two major bodies of water, Lake Maracaibo and the Gulf of Venezuela.

This special issue contains eight topical studies on the structure, stratigraphy, and petroleum system of the Maracaibo Basin, a supergiant basin in western Venezuela. The Maracaibo basin, which is located between two andean chains, the Merida Andes and the Sierra de Perija (fig.

l), has been subjected to several deforma- tion styles during its geologic evolution. The objective of this paper is the explanation of the different tectonic phases which deformed the sedi- ments of the Maracaibo basin. The La Luna-Misoa(l) petroleum system covers an area of ab km 2 and contributes more than 98% of the total recoverable oil reserves of billion bbl and gas reserves of tcf in the Maracaibo basin.

The system developed in two phases, with each phase having the characteristics of a unique petroleum system but both sharing the Upper Cretaceous La Luna source rock. The Maracaibo Basin has been isolated from extrabasinal drainage systems since the late Oligocene, and sediments derived from the surrounding highlands were either deposited in the basin or delivered into the neighboring Falcón Basin through a narrow marine passage (the westward extension of the Falcón Channel).Cited by: Mito Juan Formation facies are not recognized in the eastern parts of the Maracaibo Basin; in these areas, Colón Formation shale facies were deposited through the late Maastrichtian, and directly overlie La Luna Formation limestones and by: Middle Eocene Mangroves and Vegetation Changes in the Maracaibo Basin, Venezuela VALENTI´ RULL Maraven, Exploration Department, Specialized Geological Services (Palynology), BoxCaracas A, Venezuela PALAIOS,V.

These deposits are predominantly limestones; the La Luna is as much as m thick, and the Querecual is much as m : Raymond W. Fary. The Maracaibo Basin in Western Venezuela is a prolific, oil-producing sedimentary basin.

The basin is bounded on the north by the Oca Fault which separates it from the Caribbean remaining sides of the basin are bounded by a branching in the northern Andes Mountains termed the Sierra de Perijá (to the west) and the Mérida Andes (to the south and east).

Eastern Venezuela is divided into three geologic-geographic provinces: The Guayana shield in the south; the Eastern Venezuelan basin in the central part; and the mountains of the Serranía del Interior and Cordillera de la Costa (Caribbean Cordillera) in the northern part.

The stratigraphy and geological history are discussed, as reflected by rocks of presumably pre-Cambrian,?Cited by: 2. The major part of Venezuela oil production is located in and around the Lake Maracaibo Basin.

The samples were collected over a 1-year period at Catatumbo and La Esperanza sites. The rainwater was acidic, with a VWA-pH of for Catatumbo and for La Esperanza.

This acidity is made up in 93% by inorganic acids (mainly H2SO4), and NH4 + is the major cation which buffer the acidity Cited by: in western Venezuela and adjacent parts of Colombia resulted in the discovery of phosphate, also of Santonian age, in the La Luna Formation, and has led to the exploration and opening of a phosphate mine at Lobatera in the State of Tachira, Venezuela, about 25 km east of the Colombian by: 6.

Evolution of the Eocene Maracaibo basin platform: The stratigraphic evolution of the Maracaibo basin during the Eocene is controlled by the oblique collision between the Caribbean plate and passive margin of South America in western Venezuela (Figure 2), and to a.

Lake Maracaibo, Spanish Lago de Maracaibo, large inlet of the Caribbean Sea, lying in the Maracaibo Basin of northwestern Venezuela. Some sources consider the water body to be the largest natural lake in South America, covering an area of about 5, square miles (13, square km), extending southward for miles ( km) from the Gulf of.

Integrating multidisciplinary information from western Venezuela Intevep, S.A. developed a comprehensive geological synthesis of the Maracaibo, Barinas and Apure basins which allow the description of 5 petroliferous systems with pods located within the Venezuelan borders: (1) Northeast of Maracaibo Basin, (2) Southwest of Maracaibo Basin, (3) Eastern Zulia, (4) Lara`s Nappes and (5).

The La Luna formation is the most prominent formation in the Maracaibo Basin and is the source rock content for majority of Bolivar Coastal Field. This is considered to be a great oil-prone source rock. At the figure to the right, the distribution in percentages of hydrocarbon generated by the La Luna formation source rocks is y: Venezuela.

Abstract. La Luna Formation is of crucial importance in the petroleum geology of northern South America, especially in Venezuela and Colombia.

La Luna Formation has been considered for a long time the main focus of study for conventional oil production, since it is the most important source rock in the Maracaibo Basin and in : A. Liborius-Parada, R. Slatt. The Maracaibo basin of Venezuela is one of the most prolific hydrocarbon basins in the world.

During the Paleogene, oblique collision between the Caribbean and South American plates produced a 4-km-thick wedge of clastic sediments, where over 40 billion barrels of hydrocarbons have been produced.
