Hosted in carbonate and crystalline basement rocks below regional unconformities, fissure-fill networks are a widely recognized, but relatively little described near-surface phenomenon (< 1-2km). Faults and fractures in otherwise tight Devonian carbo...

Hosting up to 3.3 billion barrels of oil in place, the upfaulted Precambrian 16 crystalline rocks of the Lancaster Field, offshore west of Shetland, give key insights into how 17 fractured hydrocarbon reservoirs can form in such old rocks. The Neoarc... Read More about The nature and age of basement host rocks and fissure fills in the Lancaster field fractured reservoir, West of Shetland.
