Required interpreting for geologists operating within the offshore components, quantity 10 maintains the sequence from the Norwegian Petroleum Society.
This paintings presents an updated overview of the past due Palaeozoic to provide sedimentary background of the Norwegian offshore parts within the North Sea and Mid-Norway basins. Case reports, review articles and analogue examples from adjoining components resembling Greenland and Denmark, current new principles at the improvement of the Norwegian margin from the Carboniferous throughout the Mesozoic and Cenozoic.
In specific, new proof and interpretations are provided on recognized significant reservoir-bearing successions corresponding to the Statfjord Formation and Dunlin crew within the Northern North Sea, and the Åre and the Tilje Formations within the Mid-Norway region. additionally, the higher Jurassic succession within the Haltenbanken zone is defined, giving new proof at the interaction among extensional tectonics and sedimentation throughout the moment significant rift section within the area.
The Cretaceous and Cenozoic sessions are taken care of generally, displaying their significance as total deep water sedimentary structures with confirmed and strength reservoir rocks, resembling within the Ormen Lange box, and for inflicting burial of Jurassic rocks to effective depths for hydrocarbon new release. the new sedimentary heritage of the Norwegian margin is taken care of with examples of the glacial background and colossal submarine slides which knowing is essential for the location of offshore installations.
The ebook is organised in line with geologic time, from Palaeozoic via Mesozoic to Cenozoic examples. It contains a set of palaeogeographic maps from the Carboniferous via to the Cenozoic. furthermore, there are lots of examples of center images, good log facts, correlation panels and seismic in addition to outcrop photos and logs from the analogue examples. finished reference and key-phrase lists also are included.
