As a strategy of exploration of divergent margins through deep and ultra deep water, the understanding of this challenging and poorly known environment is really relevant in terms of understanding the evolution of the basin. Recent advances in technology, in marine seismic acquisition, processing, and interpretation, has become increasingly important the continental – oceanic boundary for petroleum system within a basin still unexplored for hydrocarbons. Due to recent discoveries in the succession pre salt and post salt in the Santos and Campos Basin, is worthwhile to know what is the structural and stratigraphical context of the southernmost basin of the Brazilian margin, The Pelotas Basin. The aim of this paper is to analyze this thick stratigraphic succession using sequence stratigraphy, seismic attributes in order to create and contribute a better understanding of this basin (Pelotas) and its Africans analogues, the Walvis and Nambia basins.
