Figure 26. Diagram depicting the role that sandstone channel distribution had in controlling the extent of exploration success within the lower Paleocene, Forties Sandstone Member play in the central North Sea (Parker, 1975; Ahmadi et al., 2003). The recognition that the channel complexes were of finite width was fundamental in the discovery and exploitation of many fields in the area and was especially important in the successful appraisal and development of the Nelson field (e.g. Rose et al., 2020 and references therein). Lower diagram modified after Whyatt et al. (1992). Bal = Balder; CRET = Cretaceous; Ekof. = Ekofisk; Fm = Formation; Maastr. = Maastrichtian; Mau = Maureen; Roga = Rogaland; Se = Sele; TD = total depth.
