Exploration within the Kopervik play is impeded by difficulty in imaging the Kopervik Sandstone on seismic data due to the lack of acoustic impedance contrast between the sandstones and overlying shales. The exploration method employed in the mapping of the Kopervik play fairway of the South Halibut Basin on poor-quality 3D seismic data, leading to the Goldeneye Field discovery, is described. In the early 1990s, Shell/Esso acquired acreage in the South Halibut Basin based on the identification on 2D seismic data of a number of potential stratigraphic traps in the Kopervik play. The first well targeted an Apto-Albian isochron...
