AGR develops MultiClient studies in the Barents prior to 24th Licensing Round
We introduce several MultiClient studies in the Barents Sea that help the small and medium-sized E&P companies, but also majors, identify exploration prospects in a cost-efficient method.
Our clients benefit of AGR's MultiClient Studies' toolbox in the licence applications on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS). The studies provide integrated view on the distribution of potential reservoirs, facies and their controls at basin and field scales within a stratigraphic framework.
One of the recent studies our Reservoir Management
team developed covers the Hammerfest Basin.
AGR’s Hammerfest MultiClient
study unlocks the potential of the Triassic play of the basin showing that Triassic sedimentary facies vary from marine turbiditic channels to meanders on a coastal plain.
Another study AGR has been working on covers the area on the border between Norway and Russia.
AGR’s Exploration Manager, Erik Lorange (pictured below), comments: “Our results from an integrated geoscientific evaluation of the Eastern Finnmark Platform reveal detailed Permian and Triassic depositional environments, unlocking the potential prospectivity in the area. In the Finnmark study
we are especially looking at two periods of exposure during Permian and the gliding of Triassic sediments over the underlying basinal evaporites that create both reservoir potential and traps within the Eastern Finnmark Platform.”
AGR saw great potential in the near-shore area and started gathering geological information for the study. The working process has included 6-7 specialists working on the case with background within geology, geophysics, petrophysics and geological chemistry.
AGR’s Finnmark Platform Study is based on the interpretation of regional released 2D and 3D seismic datasets, available wells and cores, previous commercial reports, published reports and publications. Depositional environments are constructed based on the integration of the information extracted from new core descriptions, wireline log analysis and seismic interpretation, pointing at the potential reservoir rocks. Geochemistry and basin modelling analysis reveal target source rocks and their maturation in the area, peculiarly highlighting its possible partial Russian origin. Integrated facies analysis and basin modelling led to the identification of more than a dozen of hydrocarbon leads within Carboniferous, Permian and Triassic sediments in the area, being up to the half of them structural traps.
