Figure 2. Stratigraphic column depicting the main plate cycles, unconformity-bound tectono-stratigraphic (pre-, syn-, and postrift) megasequences, the occurrence of key source rock intervals, and the predominant reservoir plays in the basin. The prospective sedimentary reservoirs range in age from the Devonian to the Eocene. Although they are predominantly clastic depositional systems, upper Permian (Zechstein Group) and Upper Cretaceous (Chalk Group) carbonates also make a contribution to production in the central North Sea. E = Eocene; O = Oligocene; P = Paleocene.
