During the 1990s, the BGS worked with the United Kingdom Offshore Operators Association (UKOOA) to compile a revision of the existing UK North Sea lithostratigraphical nomenclature and to establish a new standard scheme.

The first five volumes (funded by UKOOA) covered the Central and Northern North Sea plus the Carboniferous of the Southern North Sea.

The post-Carboniferous succession of the Southern North Sea (volumes 6 and 7) were funded by BGS in order to extend the post-Carboniferous nomenclatural scheme to the entire UK sector of the North Sea.

These documents not only serve as a stratigraphic lexicon, serving the scientific community as a whole, but also a set of reference books to meet oil industry operational requirements.
