The Oil and Gas Authority (OGA) of UK has released regional maps and supporting data for the Mid North Sea High area.

The data represent the latest delivery from the OGA’s Regional Geological Mapping project which has been carried out in collaboration with Lloyd’s Register (LR) over the last three years.

The OGA named LR in 2016 as its trusted supplier for the Regional Exploration Maps and Regional and Field Support Engineering Services bids for the UKCS.  

"At LR, we understand that every reservoir is different and that each has its own unique challenges and potential, we deliver insight and solutions to help optimise reservoir performance; from development and extraction from new reservoirs and enhancing recovery from fields that have been unreachable in the past to maximising depleting reservoirs and extending the life of mature assets," said a statement from Lloyd’s Register.

The OGA is also releasing the final deliverables from the two-year post-doctoral Frontier Basins Research Mid North Sea High project that was carried out at Heriot-Watt University. The Heriot-Watt research project has produced a set of regional time interpretation grids based on the OGA’s released 2D seismic data, an extensive set of field and well summaries, and regional play maps.

The data from the OGA Regional Geological Mapping project have been published under the Open Government Licence. The deliverables from the Heriot-Watt post-doctoral research project have been released under the OGA User Licence Agreement.
