Norwegian Sea Geochemical Database
The Norwegian Sea database has been put together using publicly available geochemical data reports from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD). The reports are available in scanned PDF format and IGI has systematically catalogued and digitised these and compiled them into a single p:IGI format geochemical database.
The database comprises data for over 29,500 samples from 198 wells, including over 240 oils, 680 gas samples and 28,200 rock analyses. TOC content is reported for over 15,400 samples with most of these also having additional pyrolysis data. Molecular data are widely available for more than 1400 samples and the isotopic composition of over 2400 samples are reported. Maturity data in the form of vitrinite reflectance values are present for more than 3650 samples. In addition well data, including location and stratigraphy, have been collected and integrated where possible.
The Norwegian Sea Geochemical Database is provided with a Well Manager file containing available lithostratigraphy and basic well information for all 198 wells. This allows the user to seamlessly add samples from proprietary or in-house sources to the database, and assign uniform stratigraphy, map coordinates and other well information. The dynamic database automatically updates all plots on sample addition to minimise reaction time between data acquisition and interpretation.
