Barents Sea 2013 Datapack (Cretaceous Tertiary)

Cretaceous and Tertiary Reservoir Quality Database Upgrade

This multi-client study comprises data for twenty-three recently, or soon to be, released exploration and appraisal wells in the Norwegian Barents Sea. The study will provide additional data, supplementary to that provided in previous multi-client studies from the Norwegian Barents Sea, i.e. Stratigraphic Database and Cretaceous and Tertiary Reservoir Quality Database.

The database comprises all twenty-three wells drilled in the Barents Sea from September 2008 to January 2012, including all cored intervals in the Cretaceous and Tertiary.

Available information for the Barents Sea 2013 Datapack (Cretaceous Tertiary)

  • Full stratigraphic interpretation of the succession in all wells, utilising stratigraphic schemes defined in the larger regional database study.
  • Detailed core descriptions at 1:50 scale for the cored Cretaceous and Tertiary successions.
  • Quantitative biostratigraphical analyses on core samples.
  • Depositional interpretation of the entire Cretaceous and Tertiary interval matched to wireline logs in each well.
  • Digital conventional core analysis data coded with respect to a range of parameters including formation, sequence, lithofacies, environment, grainsize and sorting.
  • Petrographic descriptions on thin sections taken from core samples.
  • Summary of petrographic and diagenetic controls within each reservoir unit, and comparison with the larger regional database.
  • Updated time-slice thickness and palaeogeographic maps.
  • Set of close-up representative core photographs illustrating various sedimentological, ichnological and tectonic/diagenetic features.
  • Data supplied digitally using interactive GIS framework.
