Abstract
Cretaceous, in Kuqa River-Kelasu River region of the northern Tarim Basin, is composed of, in ascender order, Shushanhe Formation, Baxigai Formation and Bashijiqike Formation. Based on field observations in the respectives of sedimentology, an alluvial depositional system consisted of fan-delta, braided delta and lacustrine facies or subfaceis was recognized. Braided delta and lacustrine facies are mainly presented in Baxigai Formation while Bashijiqike Formation attributes to a fan-delta facies. By field measurement of sedimentary facies and detail descriptions of reservoir sandbodies in a scale of 1:50, the sedimentary evolution and distribution of sandbody of channel bars were discussed in this study.
