Ikon Science has completed its latest Roknowledge product, the Central North Sea (CNS) study, for which a multi‐disciplinary team analyzed and investigated over 35 wells across a broad area of the CNS. A first of its kind, the study integrates rock physics with geopressure to identify and unlock hidden E&P potential and provide a unique calibration and interpretation of the seismic behavior at key reservoir intervals.
The study integrates the information from all 35 wells to build a comprehensive model for the variations in rock properties and pressure gradients across the CNS area, as well as providing tools to predict these elements away from well control. The CNS study brings together borehole data from an increasingly wide variety of sources to provide an integrated geological and geophysical database for exploration, appraisal, and development activities.
Additionally, the CNS study delivers insight into the key geological processes (such as burial diagenesis and overpressure development) that control and impact reservoir and non-reservoir (seismic) behavior across some 20 separate stratigraphic formations spanning the Eocene to the Permian.
