The Cankiri-Corum Basin is one of the most important Tertiary basins located in the central Anatolia, Turkey. This basin is situated on a complex region and it can be classified as an “unexplored” basin. In this study, gravity anomalies, seismic and borehole data were used to investigate sub-surface structure and thickness of the sedimentary units in the Cankiri-Corum Basin. 2D modelling results of the gravity anomalies with the correlation of the seismic sections indicate that there is good consistency for a basin-fill composed of sedimentary units with thickness of 5 km. This thickness is enough for the hydrocarbon generation in case of having possible source rocks in the deeper parts of the basin that could be accepted as the “kitchen area”.
