Arctic Region

Our expertise on the Norwegian and Russian sides of the Barents Shelf is focussed on late Palaeozoic carbonate, evaporite, clastic and siliceous depositional systems using data from the sub-surface and outcrop on Svalbard. We have undertaken a range of single well regional and studies with the aims of understanding the local and regional controls on reservoir development, including the formation of karst systems.

We have logged most of the late Palaeozoic core on the Norwegian side of the Barents Shelf; details of some of these reports are in the brochure. Regional studies based on seismic stratigraphy and well correlation integrated with our well information have been used in preparation for licencing rounds on the both Russian and Norwegian sectors.
