Science - Geology / oil & gas geology
Russian term or phrase: "структурно–тектоническая ловушка”
. . . as in
“К востоку от . . . поднятия на глубинах моря около 30 м выделена . . . структурно–тектоническая ловушка.”
I’ve found references translating this as a 2/3-way trap/dip/closure; however, those references also include “ограниченная двумя разломами”, which isn’t found here. Found no references or confirmation for “structural-tectonic trap”. Suggestions?

Explanation:
Traps can be formed in many ways (Figure 1). Those formed by tectonic events, such as folding or faulting of rock units, are called structural traps. The most common structural traps are anticlines, upfolds of strata that appear as ovals on the horizontal planes of geologic maps. About 80 percent of the world's petroleum has been found in anticlinal traps.
