The Halten Terrace has been a focus for exploration for over 30 years with numerous oil and gas fields discovered, extending from Draugen in the south to Linerle in the north plus with the prolific Smørbukk, Lavrans Morvin and Kristin Field areas in Quad 6506.
The aim of the Haltenbanken Stratigraphic Database is to provide a unified stratigraphic evaluation extending across the whole of the Halten Terrace and incorporating all of the main field areas and discoveries. Well selection includes either the discovery well or an appraisal well with a view to providing a representative section for each of the field areas. Consequently a flank area well with a more complete stratigraphic section was selected in preference to a truncated crestal well in certain fields.
The Haltenbanken Stratigraphic Database comprises of a 45 well dataset covering the full stratigraphic section from Tertiary – Triassic. The study utilises the Ichron sequences which are calibrated with the Mid Norwaylithostratigraphic nomenclature.
