New petroleum systems

Programme objective
The project aims to focus on the geology around the Elbow Split high and Dutch Central Graben in order to identify and evaluate the reservoir and source rock potential in rock sequences from the latest Carboniferous to the earliest Rotliegend by means of an integrated multi-discipline approach.

The hypothesis is built on a tectonosedimentary reasoning with a strong link to biostratigraphy. Intricate integration of:

  • sedimentology of cores;
  • biostratigraphic analysis of rock samples;
  • (sequence) stratigraphic evaluation of logs;
  • interpretation of key seismic lines.
