Abstract

A review of lithostratigraphy of the Singa Formation is based on new data, which was obtained through the latest study conducted. Generally, Singa Formation is dominant with black mud stones, which are interbedded with medium to thick sandstone and some conglomerate layers. The study involved analysis of some sedimentary logs that were recorded in the field. All sedimentary logs were then correlated to get a composite log that represents the entire sequence of the Singa Formation. Based on detail study of lithologic correlation, a new lithostratigraphy of the Singa Formation which consists of four members, namely Kentut Member, Ular Member, Selang Member and Lembung Member is proposed. Kentut Member is the oldest member while Lembung Member is the youngest member. Ular Member was considered as the lenses between Kentut and Selang Member. A series of sea level changes were interpreted throughout the deposition of Singa Formation that are believe due to the melting of glacier that cause the sea level to rise and continuous deposition of sediment that cause the basin to become shallow and lowering the lea level.
