2014 Upgrade Faroe – Shetland Basin Stratigraphic Database

The aim of the 2014 Upgrade Faroe – Shetland Stratigraphic Database is to incorporate recently released wells from the Faroe – Shetland Basin into the Ichron stratigraphic subdivision that extends throughout the Atlantic margin database.

This upgrade will include wells from Amos (204/25a-8Y/Z), Cambo (204/10a-3), Fulla Prospect (206/5a-3), Glenlivet (214/30a-2/Y/Z), Lagavulin Prospect (217/15-1Z), Lancaster (205/21a-4), Tornado (204/13-1/1Z), South Uist Prospect (214/21a-2) and Whirlwind (205/21a-5).

A total of 20 wells will be subjected to biostratigraphic review and this work will be augmented by additional biostratigraphic analysis of new and archive slides to increase the stratigraphic resolution. The Ichron sequences are calibrated with the UKOOA/BGS lithostratigraphic nomenclature.
