North Viking Graben & Tampen Spur (2016 Update) Stratigraphic Database

The aim of North Viking Graben and Tampen Spur (2016 Update) Stratigraphic Database is to provide a 20 well dataset that builds upon and refines the stratigraphic understanding established in the North Viking Graben and Tampen Spur Stratigraphic Database completed in 2010.

The 2016 Update incorporates wells released following the completion of the original study together with additional archive wells excluded from the original well selection. The stratigraphic interval includes the Tertiary – Triassic including the main hydrocarbon bearing units of the Cretaceous (Agat) and Jurassic – Triassic, (Sognefjord, Fensfjord, Krossfjord, Ness, Etive, Oseberg, Cook and Statfjord formations).

The study utilises the Ichron sequences which are calibrated with the North Sea lithostratigraphic nomenclature and also incorporates the NPD/Norlex terminology.
