      Abstract The Inangahua, New Zealand, earthquake occurred in the West Coast Basin and Range Province, northwest of the main plate boundary zone in northern South Island. At MS , it is not the largest known earth-quake in the province, but it has been the subject of thorough seismological, geological, and geodetic documentation. The region has potential for onshore and shallow-water discoveries, and it contains the largest population centers on the South Island. The Canterbury basin contains >5 km of Cretaceous-Cenozoic.

Common to almost all New Zealand basin subsidence curves is a sedimentary signature associated with rifting of the Gondwana super-continent ( Ma). In the Great South Basin a second rifting event is inferred at 51 [plus or minus] 2 Ma, illustrated by a rapid increase in subsidence rates (with a maximum rate of -1 at Pakaha-1).Author: Louise Jane Christie.

Cretaceous structures are dominantly compressional onshore in the north and extensional offshore and in the south.

There are few Paleogene structures, reflecting a passive margin phase. Numerous oil and gas seeps demonstrate the region's petroleum potential, and significant gas was found in the two offshore wells drilled.
