Dataset creators British Geological Survey
Dataset theme Geoscientific Information
Dataset abstract

This datasets contains 323 observations of borehole breakouts across and drilling induced tensile fractures from borehole imaging used to re–characterise the UK stress field orientation in 2016. This was published in the Journal of Marine and Petroleum Geology and is openly available using doi:10.1016/j.marpetgeo.2016.02.012

The observations relate to 39 wells from Central England, Northern England and Northern Scotland and are provided with links to screen grabs of the images for clarity. The basic well metadata is supplied along with a description of the dataset.

The Images were generated in the IMAGE DISPLAY module of the Landmark RECALL software and are supplied on an "as shown" basis. Descriptions of the tools and the techniques used are listed in the accompanying paper:
