Drilled wells allow identify presence of sandstone bodies along the sedimentary sequence, which would be reservoirs. On the other side the claystones interbedded in the sequence could act as local seals. Normal faults create stratigraphicstructural traps by truncation against the basement, with possibility of forming stratigraphic traps by onlap to the southwest over the basement.
The hydrocarbon generation has been proposed with models based on existing information. For this basin the option of biogenic gas generation from immature rocks can be postulated.
