Geological controls on gas production: Wissey field, UK SNS

Craig Duguid, John R Underhill

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    Zechstein Supergroup carbonates have formed a highly disappointing exploration target beneath UK waters. The Wissey gasfield, situated in the UK Southern North Sea is the first gas field in that region to produce solely from Zechstein Supergroup Carbonates and specifically the Z3 Plattendolomit Formation. Investigation, integrating seismic interpretation with well data analysis has explored the stratigraphy and structural complexity of the Wissey region. Furthermore, the nature of the naturally fractured Plattendolomit Formation reservoir and controls on the observed reservoir quality have been identified and are set in the context of both the Z3 depositional system and the subsequent deformation observed.
