West Of Britain - UK/Ireland
Invaluable dataset for insight into the Atlantic Margin
The PGS Atlantic Margin MegaProject covers the vast region west of Britain and Ireland, straddling the Porcupine Basin, Rockall Trough and various ‘perched basins’ (e.g. Slyne/Erris).The aim of the MegaProject aims to provide a fully QC’d, matched and merged regional interpretation package.
The region was subject to Permo-Triassic and Jurassic-Cretaceous rift phases, with Cretaceous and lower Eocene magmatism. Prospectivity is split into three areas: 1) Permo-Triassic on the perched basins; 2) Mesozoic in the Porcupine Basins; and 3) Paleocene turbidites in the northern Rockall Basin.
The fully matched and merged 2D and 3D Atlantic MegaProject provides the key data set to kick-start exploration in this exciting frontier area. It represents a regional tool for reconstructing the extent and distribution of the main structures and play types along the margin
