Large-scale injection complexes, which border many Paleogene deep-water sandstone accumulations in the North Sea, are modeled as emplaced in a single phase by sand fluidization into preexisting fractures and as extruding on the sea floor. The energy involved in the emplacement of the large-scale dikes and extrusions is at least in the order of 1013 J and is mainly expended when lifting the large mass (3.1 × 1011 kg) of granular material and fluid. Minor amounts of energy are dissipated as frictional effects. The flow velocity at the exit point on the sea floor is calculated to...
