Sverre Planke and Dougal Jerram, have been recently bringing highlights from the ‘Volcanic Margin Petroleum Prospectivity’ project to South America. They formed a key part of a session entitled 'Magmatism in Sedimentary Basins and Interactions with Petroleum Systems' at the 49th Geological Congress and VII Volcanic symposium, in Rio this August (20-24th)
Deliverables are; 5 Core Module training manuals and associated ppt’s, 5 Research Modules, 9 PDF reports, 2 PPT’s, and Volcanic Petrophysical Database. VMAPP provided as both a hard copy box set and digital version, and 4 day introduction course/consultancy visit inclusive.
P-Cable 3D study of pockmarks and shallow fluid flow systems at the Snøhvit field in the SW Barents Sea
Successful collaboration between UiT and VBPR
Analysis of high-resolution 3D P-Cable seismic data from the Hammerfest Basin to describe likely fluid pathways leading to pockmark formation at the seabed. Also explaining the age and timescale of pockmark development, and conceptual model illustrating pockmark formation mechanisms.
P-Cable for time-lapse seismic monitoring - P.Hatchell et al (Shell) at EAGE 2018
Shell acquired high resolution 3D and 4D streamer seismic data over three deep water fields. The resulting data show that HR3D images can be obtained at reservoirs located up to 2000 m below the seafloor in deepwater environments. An additional 2D test of the system demonstrated a time-lapse repeatability of NRMS=15% in zones where the reservoirs lay above the first water bottom multiple. This work suggests that HR3D surveys are suitable for low-cost time-lapse seismic monitoring of deepwater reservoirs and geohazards that are shallow relative to the water depth.
Hawaii er et fantastisk sted å studere vulkanske prosesser og avsetninger. Vi har nylig samlet inn borehullsdata på øya for å bedre forstå geologien på midtnorsk sokkel.
Congratulations to Kim Senger and co-authors for winning the European Association of Geoscientists & Engineers (EAGE) 2018 Nigel Anstey Award with the paper “Effects of igneous intrusions on the petroleum system: a review”, published in First Break Vol 35, No 6, June 2017.
Looking for gas - with better eyes.
Join in the search for new gas giants to fill the pipelines to Europe.
Huge areas remain underexplored in the Norwegian Sea. Now is the time to find gas in vast quantities. But do not forget there is a fair chance to discover oil.
The Jan Mayen Microplate Complex (JMMC) in the NE Atlantic is interpreted to mostly consist of continental fragments with possible interstitial embryonic oceanic crust. A complex Cenozoic rifting history accompanied by extensive extrusive and intrusive volcanism have made the geological characterization of the JMMC challenging especially due to poor seismic imaging beneath the breakup basalt succession.
Synthesis report presenting our conjugate margin approach for exploring the outer mid-Norway and SW Barents Sea margins by integrating seafloor sampling results, geology, and plate reconstructions models to understand the hydrocarbon prospectivity of these frontier areas.
Report will be available Q1-2019
