The discovery of the Ormen Lange gas field in 1997, with recoverable reserves of approx 3.97 billion cubic meters, highlighted the importance of this area of the Norwegian continental shelf for oil and gas exploration. The Møre and Vøring Stratigraphic Database comprises of 33 wells of which 4 wells are from the Ormen Lange Field
including the discovery well 6305/5-1. The stratigraphic evaluation for the entire study database cumulatively covers the Tertiary, Cretaceous, Jurassic and Triassic. The broad areal extent or the well database has resulted in an extensive range of formations being analysed which include the Tare, Tang (Egga Member), Springar, Nise, Kvitnos, Lysing, Lange, Spekk, Rogn, Melke, Garn, Not, Ile, Ror and Tilje Formations.
The large amount of core taken from the Early Paleocene and Maastrichtian reservoir sections has resulted in
high resolution biostratigraphic control and confident sequence assignment.
