The Previous HitfaultNext Hit accommodation zone is a significant geologic structure which regulates the kinematic equilibrium in tectonically deformed zone. Four big Previous HitfaultNext Hit accommodation zones are identified in Gaoyou depression, namely Zhenwu-Wubao synthetic-overlapping Previous HitfaultNext Hit accommodation zone, Zhen 2 inside Previous HitfaultNext Hit synthetic-overlapping Previous HitfaultNext Hit accommodation zone, Wu 1 inside Previous HitfaultNext Hit synthetic-collinear Previous HitfaultNext Hit accommodation zone, Hanliu-Wu 2 Previous HitfaultNext Hit antithetic-collinear Previous HitfaultNext Hit accommodation zone. Study of the sedimentation, tectonics and oil & gas pools of Gaoyou depression shows that the synthetic Previous HitfaultNext Hit accommodation zones are apt to form water systems, with various sedimentary fans and structural traps developed, and are close to the oil-generating center, so they are places of main oilfields in Gaoyou depression. While antithetic Previous HitfaultTop accommodation zones, forming uplifts of low amplitude normally, are not favorable to oil and gas pooling for absence of water systems and sand bodies, and long distance from oil-generating centers.
