Abstract

Progress in understanding the structural evolution of the Pannonian Basin is reported. This has been driven by the application of seismic stratigraphy constrained by magnetostratigraphic data and the recent release of a great amount of hydrocarbon exploration data. This has led to a redefinition and better understanding of the syn-rift period and style of rifting. In addition, a complex structural evolution history during the post-rift phase has been recognized. Two compressive events are defined: one in the early stage and another in the late stage of evolution. The importance of these findings for hydrocarbon exploration includes an improved knowledge of the timing of trap formations and a possible explanation for remarkably variable reservoir pressures in pools of the Great Hungarian Plain.
