East Shetland Basin - UK - 2013
Improved and more reliable structural-stratigraphic delineation
DUN2013 provides GeoStreamer 3D coverage over the north-eastern edge of the prolific East Shetland Basin, on a key area of the Brent Province. The largest fields in the survey area include: Dunlin, Osprey and Causeway, all with a Middle Jurassic reservoir (Brent Group).
The main basin structural features formed during the Late Jurassic rifting. The Basin prospectivity is dominated by Middle Jurassic sand prone reservoirs within clearly defined structural closures (e.g. Brent Group). The source kitchen is the upper Jurassic Kimmeridge Clay within graben lows.
The higher frequency content and wider bandwidth provided by true broadband GeoStreamer technology provide improved and more reliable structural-stratigraphic delineation. This results in a better understanding of the lateral distribution of the reservoirs over this key mature area.
