Website Map for Survey Hammerfest 3D
This survey images structures associated with East-West trending faults as part of the Nysleppen fault complex, where faulted Jurassic section may have potential to hold further prospects.
The main proven reservoir in the region is the good quality sandstones of the Jurassic section but other reservoir potential may be located in Cretaceous wedges, deeper Triassic sandstones and Permian carbonates. The Jurassic play in the Tubåen formation is confirmed by the Bamse discovery.
