The 29th Licensing Round Study - Mid North Sea High project
Mid North Sea High projectIn the 2015/16 UK Budget, OGA was assigned funds to acquire seismic and other geoscience data in under-explored areas of the UK Continental Shelf in order to improve regional evaluations and stimulate future exploration activity by improving the fundamental geological understanding of these areas. Two areas were selected for surveying, in collaboration with industry, and the geophysical acquisition work was completed and data processed. The surveys cover the Rockall Trough and the Mid North Sea High (MNSH) areas with a total of up to 40,000 km of new and legacy seismic data (including a substantial set of Broadband 2D seismic data) presented in the figure below. Final Processed and Raw data were also available at the end of March 2016, including full-offset stacks, angle stacks, gathers, velocity data, navigation data, gravity data, magnetic data and well log data.
The feasibility study “Integrating Rock Physics into the Seismic Image” in the MNSH area was finished on the 24th June 2016 and GeoP4ysics Ltd was awarded for its overall interpretation to perform the final study for OGA. The final study includes:
2D seismic structural interpretation of horizons and faults to define structural lineaments and highlight Carboniferous potential including, BPU unconformity, Top Westphalian, Top Namurian, Lower Carboniferous, Top Devonian and Devonian limestone. The shallower interval including Mesozoic and Permian was also interpreted.
Maps for key horizons
Geology, petroleum system and new leads overview
Stratigraphy, Rock physics and Inversion study
The Mid North Sea High report and study are available now. The study was awarded by OGA for the overall interpretation in 2016. Under the terms of the OGA’s Exploration Licence Competition, Geop4ysics can now freely market the products that were generated for the OGA either as part of Phase 2 or Phase 3 of the competition.
