Barents Sea Geochemical Database
The Barents Sea Database has been put together using publicly available geochemical data reports from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD). The reports are available in scanned PDF format and IGI has systematically catalogued, digitised and compiled these into a single p:IGI format geochemical database.
The database comprises data for over 27,900 samples from 74 wells, including over 27,400 rock analyses, 120 oils and 250 gas samples. TOC content is reported for over 21,000 samples with most of these also having additional pyrolysis data. Molecular data are widely available for more than 1900 samples and the isotopic composition of over 1050 samples are reported. Maturity data in the form of vitrinite reflectance values are present for more than 2400 samples. In addition well data, including location and stratigraphy, have been collected and integrated where possible.
The Barents Sea Geochemical Database is provided with a Well Manager file containing available lithostratigraphy and basic well information for all 74 wells. This allows the user to seamlessly add samples from proprietary or in-house sources to the database, and assign uniform stratigraphy, map coordinates and other well information. The dynamic database automatically updates all plots on sample addition to minimise reaction time between data acquisition and interpretation.
