WGG2013M 3D GeoStreamer

Extend known Jurassic-Cretaceous plays and discover new potential
Website Map for Survey MC3D-WGG2013M
Covering the north-western margin of the Witch Ground Graben and parts of the Halibut Shelf and the East Shetland Platform, this survey increases coverage and offers enhanced imaging, targeting known Jurassic-Cretaceous plays to reveal new potential.
The structural features formed during the Late Jurassic and Early Cretaceous rifting. The main prospectivity relies on syn-rift reservoir sandstones within structural and stratigraphic traps (e.g., Claymore and Scapa fields). The Paleozoic is clearly visible, allowing for deeper target exploration.
GeoStreamer technology provides superior images of Upper Jurassic and Lower Cretaceous main targets, underlying a thick Chalk cover. The greater bandwidth improves the definition of structures and stratigraphic geometries and allows the assessment of deeper potential (e.g. Devonian).
