Sakhalin Island is a prolific petroleum province on the western fringe of the Sea of Okhotsk - and area that has experienced active tectonics since the Early Miocene. Since the discovery of the Odoptu field in 1977 the emphasis of petroleum exploration in the Sakhalin region has shifted from onshore to offshore. We present an overview of the current regional stratigraphic and tectonic evolution on the offshore area around the petroleum fields of Piltun, Astokh and Lunskoye. These fields lie in a zone that has experienced two relatively recent tectonic events; the propagation of a N-S trending shear zone in the Miocene and regional inversion during the Pliocene. Both tectonic events affect the success or failure of the reservoir and structure in these petroleum systems...
