The, as yet undeveloped, heavy-oil fields of the Western Platform contain about 500 MMbbl of oil in place. The fields are reservoired in highly porous and permeable, Middle Eocene, deep-water sandstones of the Tay Sandstone Member, deposited as turbidite flows from a shelf immediately to the west.

Oil gravity varies from 19° API in the Harbour Field to 12° API in the northern end of the Pilot Field. The reservoirs are shallow: Pilot and Harbour are at about 2700 ft TVDSS, with the Narwhal, Elke, Blakeney and Feugh discoveries being deeper at about 3300 ft TVDSS. Overall, oil viscosity...
