Norwegian South Viking Graben and Danish-Norwegian Basin Interpretation Report
This report covers the interpretation of petroleum geochemical data held within part of IGI’s Norway North Sea Petroleum Geochemical Database (2017 edition), It identifies and characterises key source rock intervals, correlating these intervals with fluids and gases in the basin, and includes a regional evaluation of source rock burial and maturation through 1-D modelling of 20 selected wells.
- Source rock geochemistry: A regional evaluation of over 14,400 rock samples from 178 wells, identifying hydrocarbon potential, kerogen type and maturity, with selected key source intervals considered for molecular and isotopic characteristics for correlation
- Hydrocarbon geochemistry: Interpretation of both the molecular and isotopic composition of over 330 oils and condensates to evaluate alteration, maturity and recognition of distinct oil families, prior to an oil-source correlation. The report also presents interpretations on available geochemical data for over 620 gas samples from 56 wells.
- 1-D Basin modelling: Models have been produced for 20 drilled wells throughout the Norwegian South Viking Graben and Danish-Norwegian Basin region and calibrated to temperature and maturity data. Results are presented for both local burial/maturation history and integrated for a regional evaluation of source maturity.
The report is provided in both printed and digital formats, the comprehensive bound report being accompanied by a CD with copies of the PowerPoint slide sets and text report, and the 1-D models in Zetaware’s Genesis format. The Norwegian South Viking Graben Geochemical Database is not included with the report but is available for separate purchase.
