The aim of the Vøring Basin (2015 Update) Stratigraphic Database is to provide a dataset that builds upon and refines the stratigraphic understanding established in the previous Møre and Vøring Stratigraphic Database (2009), Nordland Stratigraphic Database (2010) and the follow-up 2010 Nordland update.
The 2015 Update study combines selected wells from the original studies with wells released since 2010. The 2015 well database consequently includes all discoveries in the area including Aasta Hansteen, Asterix, Gro, Hvitveis and Stetind.
The database comprises a 21 well dataset covering the full stratigraphic section from Tertiary – Cretaceous. The study utilises the Ichron sequences which are calibrated with the Norwegian Sea lithostratigraphic nomenclature and incorporates both the NPD (revised 2014) and Norlex lithostratigraphic terminology.
