Website Map for Survey PGS18M09CGR
Get a unique insight into the structural geology and petroleum system of the Central Graben with this large scale GeoStreamer dataset. The survey comprises MC3D-CGR2010, CGR2011, CGR2012, CGR2013, CGRN13, NDB2013, TEG2013, PGS15001, PGS15008, PGS15015, and PGS16008.
From North to South, the Central Graben dataset covers Gert Ridge over the Gertrud Graben, Piggvar Terrace and Mandal High, Søgne Basin, the Coffee Soil Fault complex, Heno Plateau, the Tail End Graben and Ringkøbing Fyn High.
Coverage has been built up over several years of consistent acquisition using GeoStreamer technology. The data have been processed and imaged in depth using the same modern workflows to allow a unified interpretation approach through the entire volume.
