NORTH SEA CORE DATA

We recognise the importance of having access to both physical and digital geoscience data. In addition to making core material available, we hope to make more data available for download in time. Please contact us if you with any questions regarding our online material or if you are interested in something we have not yet made available for download.

MIDDLE JURASSIC BROOM SANDSTONE

This sample of sandstone from the Mid Jurassic Broom Formation is part of our Brent Exploration Box. It is coarse grained and interpreted to have been deposited in a marine fan delta system. The core CT scan shows the removal of the lighter density quartz, leaving behind the denser carbonate. These are most likely shell fragments that were transported with the sand into the basin.

REGIONAL DEPOSITIONAL FACIES MAPS

Please use the interactive map below to locate our data in the context of both geological time and space. Depositional facies maps are taken from the Oil and Gas Authority and Lloyd's Register UKCS Merged Regional Geological Maps.  More information on the regional stratigraphy can be found in the accompanying report.
