Figure 21. Examples of fields with Lower Cretaceous reservoirs resulting from the early postrift infill of remnant rift bathymetry. The Scapa and Claymore fields lie in the Witch Ground graben located on the northern side of the Halibut horst (Harker et al., 1991) and represent examples of coarse clastic infill of a major extensional half graben (modified after Sinclair and Riley, 1995). The Goldeneye field lies in the South Halibut trough located to the south of the Halibut horst and is part of the Kopevik fairway that also contains the depleted Atlantic and Cromarty fields, which together with Goldeneye are now being examined as potential carbon storage sites (Stewart and Marshall, 2020). CAC = central area Claymore; GOC = gas-oil contact; GYA = Goldeneye development well; NAC = northern area Claymore; N.P. = Formation not penetrated; TVDSS = true vertical depth subsea.
