The Upper Permian of central East Greenland contains a relatively thick, widely distributed, oil-prone source rock. It occurs directly adjacent to large, carbonate buildups that constitute the main potential reservoirs. It is immediately overlain by thick, coarse-grained sandstones that are also a potential reservoir. The whole sequence is draped by Upper Permian and Lower Triassic shales that may act as a seal.
