Mid North Sea High

The long awaited UK 29th Licensing Round is upon us. Discover the full potential of the Mid North Sea High area with PGS' modern 3D and regional 2D GeoStreamer® data.

PGS has superior seismic data over the Mid North Sea High. These datasets are crucial to understand this part of the UKCS 29th Frontier License Round.

  • 1 500 sq. km 3D survey (2013)
  • 7 000 km 2D GeoStreamer data (2009 & 2011)

Using these data, several fault blocks and faulted anticlinal folds containing pre-Westphalian potential reservoir packages (such as the Breagh and Crosgan gasfields) are now mappable in 3D, together with deep Devonian reflectors (possible Kyle Limestone).

Review the clarity and quality of 2D GeoStreamer and our modern 3D data in the examples below.

The PGS data also image a series of lower Zechstein clinothems, similar to proven Zechstein-age carbonate reservoirs in large hydrocarbon fields throughout the Central North Sea and the Southern Permian Basin.

Existing intra-Zechstein discoveries rely on complex structural/stratigraphic or stratigraphic traps. Modern 3D seismic data is essential to fully map and understand the subtle traps defined by the Hauptdolomit clinothems, and to fully exploit the hydrocarbon potential in this area.
