About this book

This book takes a critical look at some of the sequence stratigraphy concepts, and provides an account of how these have been applied recently in NW Europe (North Sea, mid Norway and East Greenland, Barents Sea and Svalbard), mainly in connection with the exploration for oil and gas.


Part 1 Introduction: sequence boundaries and sequence hierarchies, A.F. Embry; sequence stratigraphy theory - remarks and recommendations, W. Helland-Hansen; sequence stratigraphy, three dimensions and philosophy, O.J. Martinsen; practical dynamic modelling of clastic basin fill, C.M. Griffiths and F. Hadler-Jacobsen; differentiation of incised valley systems from mobile streams - some examples from the Oseberg field, Norwegian North Sea, A. Ryseth and H. Fjellbirkeland; sequence stratigraphy, alluvial architecture and potential reservoir heterogeneities of fluvial deposits, T. Olsen. Part 2 Application to the northern north sea: the lower jurassic of the north Viking Graben in the context of western European lower jurassic stratigraphy, D.N. Parkinson and F.M. Hines; reservoir architecture of the cook formation on the Gullfaks field based on sequence stratigraphic concepts, T. Dreyer and M. Wiig; architecture and sequence stratigraphic perspectives of the Dunlin group formations and proposal for new type- and reference-wells, T. Marjanac; sequence stratigraphy of the middle to upper jurassic, Viking Graben, North Sea, J.S. Sneider et al; sedimentological nature and tectonic implications of marine flooding surfaces and their basin-ward equivalents, L.G. Kessler II et al; northern limit of the "Brent Delta" at the Tampen Spur - a sequence stratigraphic approach for sandstone prediction, E.P. Johannessen et al; sedimentology and sequence stratigraphy of the Thistle field, northern North Sea, A.D. Reynolds; shoreface pinch-out style on the front of the Brent Delta in the easterly Tampen spur area, T.R. Olsen and R.J. Steel; jurassic depositional systems of the Horda platform, Norwegian North Sea - practical consequences of applying sequence stratigraphic models, D.J. Stewart et al; tectonic controls on Bathonian-Volgian Syn-Rift successions on the Visund fault block, northern North Sea, R.B. Faerseth et al; separation of late Cimmerian rift and post-rift megasequences - comparison of the Jeanne d'arc basin, grand banks and the outer Moray firth, North Sea, I.K. Sinclair and L.A. Riley; aspects of Synrift sedimentation in the upper-jurassic (helmsdale boulder beds) of the inner Moray firth basin, P. Theriault and R.J. Steel; a sequences stratigraphic study of lower cretaceous deposits in the northernmost North Sea, M. Skibeli et al; a composite standard approach to biostratigraphic evaluation of the north sea paleogene, J.A. Stein et al; cenozoic sequence stratigraphic surfaces in the eastern North Sea, O. Michelsen et al; systems tract geometries associated with early eocene lowstands, imaged on a 3D seismic dataset from the Bruce area, UK North Sea, N. Milton and M. Dyce; tertiary sequence stratigraphy and play fairway definition, Bruce Beryl embayment, quadrant 9, UKCS, R.J. Dixon and J. Pearce; sequence stratigraphic framework of the paleocene and eocene successions, block 16/1 area, I. Laursen et al. Part 3 Application to (Part contents)
