Norwegian North Sea Geochemical Database

The Norwegian North 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 currently comprises data for over 52,978 samples from 718 wells, including 710 oils, 50 condensates, 1,144 gas samples and over 50,000 rock analyses. TOC content is reported for over 30,000 samples with most of these also having additional pyrolysis data. Molecular data are widely available, including gas chromatography data for over 5,000 samples and GC-MS for around 2,750, and the isotopic composition of over 1,700 samples are reported. Maturity data in the form of vitrinite reflectance values are present for more than 7,700 samples. In addition well data, including location and stratigraphy, have been collected and integrated where possible.

The Norwegian North Sea Geochemical Database is provided with a Well Manager file containing available lithostratigraphy and basic well information for all 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.
