New data from Australia's NW Shelf and Norway from Scott Pickford (July 1998)

Corelab subsidiary Scott Pickford has finalized work on two interpreted data sets from Australia's North West Shelf and the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.

The Australia North West Shelf Interpreted Lithology project (ANWIL) is a non-exclusive study focussed on the Bonaparte basin in the Timor Sea. Initial sponsors are BHP, Shell and Woodside. Deliverables include digital lithology files in workstation-ready formats including depths for top and base of each unit and all aspects of the lithological interpretation. 212 released wells have been incorporated into the study which was performed using Scott Pickford's Litholog software. Follow up projects are planned for other areas including the Carnarvon Basin and Arafura Sea. Another new product from Scott Pickford is the second phase of the Norwegian Facies Knowledge Base (NFK - Phase II). This extends the first phase of the study from 60 to 64 N over the Norwegian continental shelf. Depositional facies interpretation of the section from TD to Top Miocene is delivered in workstation ready format. Support data and an audit trail of the facies analysis is also available and depth interpretation is referenced to seismic two-way travel time. NFK is said to help identify new acreage opportunities, to model new play concepts and stratigraphic trap possibilities. Phase I has already been acquired by nine companies. More info from,
