Non-proprietary studies of play potentials show new leads

Although the Dutch on- and offshore has been thoroughly explored, a large part of it is relatively old. New reprocessing algorithms greatly improve the quality of these data and show undiscovered and unexplored leads. Amsterdam Petroleum Geoscience intends to offer two new non-proprietary studies of the North Sea Chalk play and the West Netherlands Basin Jurassic and Triassic plays.

AmsterdamPG has extensive experience in evaluating both play potentials. With our in-house processing center, data reprocessing is one of our specialties as well as reviews and second opinions for license negotiations and farm-ins.

North Sea Chalk Play
The Chalk play, which so far features only two successful offshore discoveries in the Netherlands: F2 Hanze and F17-FC. In 2014 EBN performed a regional study on the Chalk play in the northern Dutch Offshore. It was mainly based on the recently acquired 3D seismic cube which spans a large area of the E- and F-quadrants. The study indicated that the play is underexplored in the Netherlands and hydrocarbon potential is still present.

West Netherlands Basin Jurassic and Triassic Plays
Another new discovery are the West Netherlands Basin (WNB) Upper Jurassic and Triassic plays. The Q16-Maas, Noorderdam, Maasgeul Triassic structures and the Q13-FB, Wassenaar-Zee Upper Jurassic structures are examples of relatively new and undeveloped fields.

Investing in new 3D data or its studies is generally quite expensive. AmsterdamPG presents an alternative for involved parties. The WNB is effectively covered by 3D seismic data, but a large part of it is relatively old. New reprocessing algorithms greatly improve the quality of these data.
