Conference: Chemostratigraphy of Upper Cretaceous chalk sequences in Norwegian-Danish basin and North Sea Central Trough. 2 Kimmeridgian Shales Total Petroleum System of the North Sea Graben Province for the vast majority of oil and gas resources in Western Europe. The location and boundaries of the North Sea Graben Province are shown in figure 1. In contrast to the adjacent gas-prone Anglo-Dutch and Northwest German Basin Provinces, the North Sea Graben.

At its widest, the Western Interior Seaway stretched across central Cretaceous North America from the Rockies in the west to the Appalachians in the east, a distance of approximately km ( miles). Fossils of many of North America's most famous dinosaurs have been found in the rocks of the Hell Creek Formation in Montana.

Cretaceous-Tertiary palaeo-bathymetry in the northern North Sea: integration of palaeo-water depth estimates obtained by structural restoration and micropalaeontological studies ((R. Kyrkjebø, T. Kjennerud, G. Gillmore, J.I. Faleide, R. Gabrielsen).   The source potential of the Upper Jurassic – lowermost Cretaceous shales in the North Jens‐1 well is generally lower than that observed regionally, including an absence of relatively organic‐rich, oil‐prone intervals in the older part of the succession which have been demonstrated to occur elsewhere in the Danish Central Graben.

Across the north central and northern North Sea, the Chalk Group is a major seal unit, overlying a number of blocks of reservoir rocks and preventing their fluid contents from migrating upwards. The Silverpit crater, a 20 kilometers (12 mi) diameter suspected impact crater in the North Sea (60–65 Ma).

The North Sea is a major continental basin filled with early Paleozoic to Recent sediments.

The first five volumes (funded by UKOOA) covered the Central and Northern North Sea plus the Carboniferous of the Southern North Sea. The post-Carboniferous succession of the Southern North Sea (volumes 6 and 7) were funded by BGS in order to extend the post-Carboniferous nomenclatural scheme to the entire UK sector of the North Sea.

Major normal faults, mainly trending N–S, were active during a late Permian-Early Triassic rift phase affecting large parts of the central and northern North Sea area. A later phase of extension was initiated in late Middle Jurassic time and the Egersund Basin proper formed during the Late Jurassic-Early Cretaceous.

In the Central North Sea, the Apto-Albian play appears to be confined to patchy areas within the Moray Firth basins. In this area, it is widely believed reservoir-quality sands were sourced from local residual Late Cimmerian highs, with resultant limited distributions of commercial fairways.

The basic structural framework of the North Sea is mainly the result of Upper Jurassic/ Lower Cretaceous rifting, partly controlled by older structural elements.

The Jurassic and Cretaceous strata of the North Sea host the majority of the hydrocarbons within the UKCS, including both reservoirs and source rocks. The Middle Jurassic Brent Group is the principal reservoir unit of the Northern North Sea, while the Upper Jurassic Fulmar Formation is the most important target in the Central North Sea (Fig.

1). In the Jurassic–Cretaceous North Sea basin, the synrift sequence is separated from the post-rift sequence by the ‘base Cretaceous’ or ‘late Cimmerian’ unconformity. The unconformity covers almost the entire basin, has a distinct character in seismic reflection data and wireline logs, and hence, is easily identified and correlated.LITHOSTRATIGRAPHIC NOMENCLATURE OF THE UK NORTH SEA: 2 CRETACEOUS (CENTRAL AND NORTHERN NORTH SEA).
