Formulation of the problem. Getting knowledge of the processes and mechanisms of the rocks tectonic flow is important both for geotectonics and for oil and gas geology as horizontal displacements and rotation of geological blocks in creep dislocations form secondary deformation structures. …

Keywords: horizontal strike-slip deformation, structural pattern, tectonic flow structure, structural kinematic paragenesis.
