Thick Paleozoic successions are buried under the Greater East Shetland Platform (ESP) and Mid North Sea High (MNSH), two large underexplored platform regions flanking the structural depocentres of the North Sea. Here, newly acquired broadband seismic data are interpreted to provide a novel assessment of the regional tectonostratigraphic evolution and its influence on hydrocarbon prospectivity. Numerous working reservoir units are present over these two frontier areas, together with large Paleozoic traps. Hydrocarbon charge occurs either via a likely maximum 30–40 km lateral migration from the Jurassic/Carboniferous basinal source kitchens or, possibly, via vertical/lateral migration from deeper Devono-Carboniferous source intervals....
