Hydrocarbon leakage through faults and fractures commonly limits in-place hydrocarbon reserves. Faulting and fracturing are controlled by effective stress changes, and such changes may therefore alter hydrocarbon column heights. The predictive power of stress history analyses in seal evaluation depends on how accurately the stress history and relationships between effective stress changes and hydrocarbon leakage can be determined.

Stress history and hydrocarbon occurrence were examined in four different overpressured provinces of offshore Norway in the search for such relationships. These provinces have experienced different geological histories and variable amounts of hydrocarbon leakage. Because all these areas received fairly recent...
