Geology of the Rockall Basin and adjacent areas [Book]

Geology of the Rockall Basin and adjacent areas [Book]

The deep-water Rockall Basin extends from south-west Ireland to north-west Scotland and constitutes the exploration frontier for oil and gas on the continental margin to the west of the British Isles. Up to the present time, oil company interest has focused on shallower areas of the UK continental shelf and west of Shetland. Hence the Rockall Basin has not been extensively explored and geological understanding of the basin is limited. Whereas over 10,000 commercial wells have been drilled on the UK continental shelf as a whole, only 12 of these have been drilled within, or on the margin of, the Rockall Basin The report aims to provide a comprehensive summary of the geoscientific knowledge of the Rockall Basin area and we envisage this will be a useful resource for industry, government and academia [Book]
