East Shetland Basin - UK - 2012
Improved and more reliable structural-stratigraphic delineation
Covering the northern edge of the prolific East Shetland Basin, on a key area of the Brent Province, the survey specifically targets the Eider, Otter and Kerloch fields (Middle Jurassic).
Main basin structural features were 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). Additional potential includes Upper Jurassic Magnus Sandstones and deeper targets.
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 the mature Brent – Magnus transition.
