EU project data: SACS / SACS2 data - Final Regional Digital Grids of the Utsira Sand (1999 - 2002)

Dataset description

Regional property grids of the Utsira Sand based on mapping from 2D regional seismic lines and geophysical logs. Grids include: Top Utsira depth, Base Utsira depth, Utsira isopach, Utsira porosity, Utsira porosity effective thickness, Utsira proportion clean sand. 2 km grid spacing. SACS/SACS2 EU project.

Lineage statement Source data comprise a regional grid of 2D seismic lines and a large number of geophysical well logs. Top and Base Utsira Sand were mapped in two-way travel-time from the data and from this regional scale grids were generated of top and base sand and sand isochore. Key reservoir properties were derived from the geophysical well logs, gridded and integrated with the travel-time and isochore data to produce depth, isopach and property grids.
