The structural geology of Utsira High

The Structural Geology Network Group is working towards increasing awareness and knowledge of structural geology on a local and regional scale, in order to improve exploration and production activities on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

As part of our focus on strengthening the competence within structural geology, we have started a series of Lunch&Learn sessions, which have become rather popular.

The 3rd Lunch&Learn will focus on the structural geology of the Utsira High, presented by Liz Thompson from Lundin.

The seminar will be held in NPD offices in Stavanger

The structural geology of Utsira High

Utsira High is enigmatic in other aspects related to the history of hydrocarbon discoveries over time, but the most interesting part is the complex structural geology of this basement block. Utsira High is situated in an area with several different major structural systems of different age and orientation. They have influenced the structural development of the high with various impact, and it will be very interesting to hear the presentation from Liz Thompson.
