Geological structures of Vietnam,locating at the eastern margin of SE Asia, experienced numerous tectonic phases during Cenozoic Era that is especially marked by the collision of India-Eurasia. This collision caused strike-slip movements along the Red River Fault (RRF) and opening the South China Sea (SC Sea). The movements of the RRF affected structural styles in onshore and offshore northern Vietnam territory and the deformation history is recorded in the sediments of the Red River basin (RR basin). In this paper, the authors present some maiden results from seismic interpretation in the northern Vietnam for illustrating deformation of geological sequences under regional tectonics and how this deformation acts upon the oil and natural gas generating, migrating and accumulating, which are still remaining as hot topics for petroleum industry.
