West of Shetland Geochemical Database
The West of Shetland Database has been compiled from data released onto the Oil & Gas Authority (OGA) website, in collaboration with Shell, Exxon, and Applied Petroleum Technology (APT). IGI has systematically catalogued and where necessary digitized, all these data and compiled them into p:IGI-3, the industry standard application for petroleum geochemical databasing and interpretation.
The database comprises data for 4161 samples from 156 wells, including over 150 oil and gas samples and 3900 rock analyses. TOC content is reported for 1601 samples with some of these also having additional pyrolysis data. The isotopic compositions of 235 samples are reported. Maturity data in the form of vitrinite reflectance values are present for 2087 samples. In addition well data, including location and stratigraphy, have been collected and integrated where possible.
The West of Shetland Geochemical Database is provided with a Well Manager file containing available 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 minimize reaction time between data acquisition and interpretation.
