3D kinematics of a thick salt layer during gravity-driven deformation

Abstract:

We present the results of an interpretation of 2D and 3D seismic from offshore Lebanon in which we identify a suite of 5 linearly distributed trails of fluid escape pipes with pockmarks at their upper terminus. These features transect the thick Messinian evaporites and root within prominent NE-SW oriented pre-salt folds. The pipe trails are oriented orthogonal to the strike of the pre-salt folds, with a synchronous initial expulsion episode in each trail dated at 1.7 Ma (±0.3 Ma), approximate...
