The T-Block Fields, Block 16/17, UK North Sea
The Tiffany, Toni, Thelma and SE Thelma fields, collectively referred to as the T-Block fields lie wholly within UK Block 16/17 at the southern end of the South Viking Graben. The four fields were discovered between 1976 and 1980 and despite the fact that they share a common reservoir, the Upper Jurassic Brae Formation, they are quite distinct in terms of their petroleum content (type), reservoir quality and production performance. This paper summarizes the characteristics of the T-Block petroleum accumulations and highlights the differences between each of the fields.

Memoir 20 is the most comprehensive reference work on the UK’s oil and gas fields available. It updates and substantially extends Memoir 14 (1991), United Kingdom 0il and Gas Fields, one of the Geological Society’s best-selling books. This new edition contains updates on many of the ageing giant fields, as well as entries for fields either undiscovered or undeveloped when Memoir 14 was published.
The book is divided into nine parts covering the major petroleum provinces both offshore and onshore United Kingdom, from the Gas Basin in the southern North Sea to the Viking Graben in the northern North Sea, from the Atlantic Frontier to the Irish Sea and from the Wessex Basin to the East Midlands. Each part contains a reference map showing field locations. The introductory chapters reveal the stories behind the major plays and discoveries therein, and their tectonic and stratigraphic framework. There are two appendices: tabulated field data and a comprehensive list for all of the UK's 300+ oil and gas fields.
