Coastal exposures of Mesozoic sediments in the Wessex basin and Channel subbasin (southern UK), and the Lusitanian basin (Portugal) provide keys to the petroleum systems being exploited for oil and gas offshore Atlantic Canada. These coastal areas have striking similarities to the Canadian offshore region and provide insight to controls and characteristics of the reservoirs. Outcrops demonstrate a range of depositional environments from terrigenous and non-marine, shallow siliciclastic and carbonate sediments, through to deep marine sediments, and clarify key stratigraphic surfaces representing conformable and non-conformable surfaces. Validation of these analog sections and surfaces can help predict downdip, updip, and...
