AGR develops MultiClient studies in Barents Sea prior to 24th Concession Round


AGR has developed 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.

AGR's MultiClient studies provide an entry tool for its clients to obtain a significant amount of interpreted key horizons and well data, supported by a complete public 2D and 3D seismic database on which to make sound planning and investment decisions.

One of the recent Studies the team has developed covers the Hammerfest Basin.

The Hammerfest Basin is the most prolific area in the Barents Sea with two fields already operating and many discoveries made in the area. Yet, the Hammerfest Basin is still expected to have a great hydrocarbon potential of undiscovered resources within the Triassic and the Jurassic hydrocarbon plays.

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.

AGR has detected several Early to Late Triassic third order stratigraphic sequences where delta fronts may occupy the western and southern part of the Hammerfest Basin. The deeper Fennoscandian derived delta fronts laterally change the direction of progradation from S-N to SE-NW through the time. Forced Regression System Tracts (ST), Low Stand ST, Transgressive ST and High Stand ST are fairly easy to recognise in seismic sections which allows detecting the best sandy reservoirs in each sequence. These possible reservoir sands have been buried deeper before the uplift, bearing witness of porosity and permeability preservation in the Early and Middle Triassic sands in the Hammerfest basin.

Unlocking the potential of the Finnmark Platform

Another study AGR has been working on covers the area on the border between Norway and Russia.

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.

AGR's Exploration Manager, Erik Lorange (pictured), 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. 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.”
