The tectonic line in north Tarim was nearly W-E trending, with a series of narrow, linear to curvilinear anticlines being well developed, which was rich in oil-gas and named the Kuqa petroliferous system covering the Kuqa Depression and part of the North Tarim Rise. And there were the NNW-striking structures, namely, the structural transfer zones which accommodated the displacement across the main structures. The Xiqiulitage-Shengli structural transfer zone, separated the Wushi Depression and the Wensu Rise in the west from the Kuqa Depression and the North Tarim Rise in the east, respectively, was the largest-scale and most important one. The structural transfer zone, with a complicated inner textures, was composed of some en echelon anticlinal belts. It created in Neogene in a foreland area, by a southward compressive stress field, and the earlier NW-striking structure in an age of Hercynian-Indosinian also played an important role in its creation. The tectonic style of the Xiqiulitage-Shengli structural transfer zone was controlled by the basement structures, the asymmetrical thrusting and the salt structure developing. Occurring of the structural transfer zones was favorable for oil migration and accumulation. In southern part of the studied area, the target for oil exploration might be the traps which had a paleostructural background and not influenced by later large-scale gas cutting.
