Norway

Over the last 30 years IGI has been involved in many geochemical and basin modelling projects across Norway. The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate routinely makes geochemical data available publicly and IGI have spent several years cataloguing and digitising these data into well structured and fully quality controlled databases. We currently have 3 regional databases available for purchase; the North Sea, Barents Sea and Norwegian Sea. We have also written a geological interpretation report for the Barents Sea region containing an evaluation of the source rock, oil and gas geochemistry as well as a 1-D basin modelling study to assess source maturity. We are currently looking to write interpretation reports for the Norwegian Sea and areas of the North Sea.

IGI's Norwegian databases are routinely updated at the start of each year to ensure that all data currently available from the NPD's website are included in the database and ready for interpretation.

Barents Sea Geochemical Database

The Barents Sea Database contains over 27,000 samples from 73 wells across the region. It has been put together using publicly available geochemical data reports from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD). Data is included for over 26,700 rocks, 119 oils and 230 gas samples, ranging from screening analyses through to detailed GCMS. This database is an excellent starting point for both regional study and more targeted investigation of specific prospects.

Barents Sea Geochemical Interpretation Report

This report covers identification and characterization of key source rock intervals, correlation of these with oils, condensates and gases, and a regional evaluation of source rock burial, maturation and uplift history. Data used in this evaluation are taken from the Barents Sea Geochemical Database.

Barents Sea 1-D Basin Models

The database contains 65 ready-to-use thermally-calibrated 1-D basin models (in Genesis format). The models provide an estimation of heat flow, geothermal gradient and Cenozoic uplift/erosion in each well location by using vitrinite reflectance data and (corrected) temperature data from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD).

Norwegian Sea Geochemical Database

The Norwegian Sea Database contains over 29,000 samples from 196 wells. It has been put together using publicly available geochemical data reports from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD). Data is included for over 240 oils, 590 gases and approaching 28,000 rock samples, ranging from screening analyses to detailed GCMS. This database is suitable for both regional and prospect specific investigation work.

Norwegian Sea Geochemical Interpretation Report

This report covers identification and characterization of key source rock intervals, correlation of these with oils, condensates and gases, and a regional evaluation of source rock burial and maturation.  A section of the report considers potential Cretaceous sourcing in the deeper basins.  Data used in this evaluation are taken from the Norwegian Sea Geochemical Database.

Norwegian North Sea Geochemical Database

The Norwegian North Sea Database contains over 47,800 samples from 576 wells across the region. It has been put together using publicly available geochemical data reports from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD). Data is included for over 46,000 rocks, 160 oils and 986 gas samples, ranging from screening analyses through to detailed GCMS. This database is currently undergoing the final stages of quality control and will be ready to purchase very soon.
