... in the Foinaven Subbasin. Studies such as Dore et al. (1997) and Grant et al. (1999) have questioned key parameters affecting the viability of the holding tank sandstone model. Given the lack of evidence for the presence of these ‘holding tanks’, such models should be downgraded in favour of a simpler...

... occurred: (1) during the Late Cretaceous as subsiding source rocks in the Foinaven subbasin started to generate oil, trapped in Late Cretaceous sandstones, and ceased in response to the end-Cretaceous uplift; (2) during the Paleocene as a result of sudden renewed subsidence, trapped in Paleocene turbidites...

... Triassic and Lower Jurassic sediments were deposited during various stages of rifting and the early development of the Fundy Basin. The exposed portion of Mesozoic strata along the beaches and cliffs of the Minas subbasin is small in comparison to its subsurface extent beneath the Bay of Fundy. The Upper...

... and Broks (1999) have shown that rich oil-prone Lower Jurassic and Middle Jurassic source rocks also occur in the Atlantic margin province, and that oil in the Foinaven and Schiehallion fields ( Figure 18 ) can be correlated to these sources. A viable petroleum system has yet to be established...
