Explore the prospective Piper Shelf with broadband technology
Covering the Witch Ground Graben, Piper Shelf and parts of the Fladen Ground Spur, including Mesozoic and Paleocene fields (e.g. Piper, Saltire, Dumbarton), this dataset defines reservoir and structure with clarity, to push exploration onto the East Shetland Platform.
The main reservoirs were deposited during the Late Jurassic and Cretaceous rifting and sag phases. Paleocene subsidence resulted in the deposition of turbiditic reservoir sandstones (Montrose Gp). Paleozoic potential exists in structures and reflectors that are now clearly visible (e.g. Devonian).
AVO-compliant GeoStreamer technology provides a vastly improved image of the existing Paleocene and Jurassic targets, allowing for optimal field development and near-field exploration. Well-imaged Paleozoic reflectors at last allow the analysis of deeper targets in this frontier area.
