  • Description: The Kloštar Oil Field is situated at the north-western part of Sava Depression in the Croatian part of the Pannonian Basin. It is a typical geological structure that evolved through the Neogene and Quaternary and that is why the structural evolution is reconstructed using palinspastic mapping (i.e., using selected chronostratigraphic horizons as datum planes). The total map set includes six structural and 15 palaeostructural maps interpolated over five E-log markers and one border. The mapping has been performed using the Ordinary Kriging. The maps were used for the interpretation of geological evolution during the Neogene and Quaternary, and particularly a description of hydrocarbon reservoir formation and migration pathways. The structural development can be explained through two phases of transtension and two of transpression that existed regionally in the Sava Depression. However, the maps and cross-sections that are described locally show changes of dominant tectonic styles, particularly during the Quaternary when most of the field was a depositional centre.
