The multi-channel seismic reflection data of about 700 km length were collected offshore Cide-Sinop in the southern Black Sea shelf in 1990 by Turkish Petroleum Company (TP) and studied under the research project of Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (Project no. TUBİTAK-ÇAYDAG-114Y057). The data have been processed by applying conventional data processing steps under 'Echos' seismic data processing software in ‘ITU Nezihi Canıtez Data Processing Laboratory’and interpreted as stratigraphical and structural. Stratigraphically, four main seismic units from shallow to deep have been interpreted in the seismic sections. The stratigraphic elements in the region indicate the existence of Paleocene-Upper Cretasous and younger units. Erosional surfaces of the top of the seismic units are widely cropped out at the seafloor and these units constitute the flat shelf plain. Structurally, strike-slip faults with generally compression components and reverse/thrust faults are mapped which generally deform all seismic units and reach the seafloor. Thus, they are interpreted as active faults.
