Brebes Area, in Central Java (108° 47' 59.99" E - 108° 55' 46.89" E and 7° 2' 9.59" S - 7° 7' 54.72" S), have been known as an area with numerous oil and gas seepages. In contrary, the petroleum system study of this area is scanty and not fully understood. Turbidite deposit were found in this area. Four (4) stratigraphic sections were observed along the Rambatan and Ciseureuh River within 30 to 261 meters in thickness. Based from those sections, the Formations could be devided into 4 type lithofacies, that is: (1) Type 1: consists of Interbeded of thin-bed sandstone and siltstone Paralel lamination, wavy, lenticular and graded bedding are the most common sedimentary structure, although climbing ripple, low scale slump stratification and sandy injection, (2) Type 2: consists of fine grained sandstone and siltstone, sedimentary structures can be seen are convolute bed, wavy, and ripple, (3) Type 3: consists of interbedded siltstone and very fine-grained sandstone with lower laminae, small scale slump bedding, upper laminae, and muddy siltstone are mainly characteristic, and (4) Type 4: consists of interbedded shale and very fine grained sandstone graded bedding and wavy are the most common sedimentary structures with volcanic material at the base. The Depositional Environment interpretation is also been made in the area using Mutti and Normark (1987) classification, which shows that Type 1 deposited in Middle Fan, Type 2 deposited in outer fan and Type 3 and 4 were deposited in the Inner Fan. The porosity calculation using the Helium Porosimetry Technique shows 2 to 28% porosity; and 0.01 mD to 201 mD permeability value. The good porosity value 18.9 to 24.7% and permeability value 9.41 to 201 mD were found at Type 3. Based on those study, we could interpreted that the good porosity were found at the fine sandstone lithology.
