This paper focuses on the Bohai Bay region and explores the pivotal role of structural transformation belts in hydrocarbon exploration and accumulation, along with their influence on geological processes. Located in northeastern China, the Bohai Bay region is an area rich in oil and gas resources, where geological structures and structural transformation belts significantly impact the aggregation and preservation of hydrocarbons. This paper first introduces the basic types of extensional tectonic transformation structures. Subsequently, it examines the typical transformation structural characteristics of the Bohai Bay region and finally analyzes the petrological significance of structural transformation belts in the area. In summary, the structural transformation belts in the Bohai Bay region provide crucial geological conditions for hydrocarbon exploration and development. In-depth research and understanding of these structural features are essential for elucidating hydrocarbon accumulation mechanisms and resource potential.
