Abstract

The "Albian transgression" may be recognised lithostratigraphically in a number of boreholes in the UK sector of the southern North Sea Basin. This event is also recognised onshore the United Kingdom. The importance of this event for hydrocarbon exploration is discussed, and comparisons are made with sections in West Germany. The "Albian transgression" is a regional event in NW Europe which is important for understanding the pattern of basin evolution during Early and "Mid" Cretaceous times. It is also important because the diachronous coarse clastics associated with the transgression may prove to be of important reservoir potential in the southern North Sea area (UK sector).
