A Review of Traditional Awards in Quadrant 43
1 January 2004

The Silverpit Basin is located to the north of the main Leman Sandstone fairway in an area where exploration has traditionally focused on the Lower Triassic Bunter Sandstone and Carboniferous (Upper Namurian and Lower Westphalian) sandstones. Although the Triassic has been an exploration objective as recently as 1997, future exploration will focus on the Carboniferous, and in particular on inter-Carboniferous structural plays, where seismic imaging is critical.
