In the Central North Sea, the Apto-Albian play appears to be confined to patchy areas within the Moray Firth basins. In this area, it is widely believed reservoir-quality sands were sourced from local residual Late Cimmerian highs, with resultant limited distributions of commercial fairways. Local hydrocarbon modelling proves that most hydrocarbons discovered to date occur within stratigraphic traps, discovered largely by serendipity during appraisal of older structurally defined reservoirs. Re-appraisal of Jurassic to Cretaceous tectonic models shows how tectonic trends within the Moray Firth basins are optimized for discovery of Lower Cretaceous reserves. These models also suggest considerable upside...
