  5. 5. Chalk Background Discovery F17-NE 4-12-’12: Wintershall announces an oil discovery in exploration licence F17a in the Dutch North Sea. Exploration well F17-10 found a Late Cretaceous Chalk reservoir of good quality containing crude oil. Preliminary resource estimates indicate a potential of at least 30 million barrels recoverable oil with a more than significant upside. EBN study 2013: • ‘Chalk in the northern Dutch offshore is underexplored’ • Non-exclusive 3D-seismic in DEF-quadrants shot in 2011/2012 with Fugro F17
  6. 6. Chalk Study Area • Focus on open acreage • Regional 2D dataset • Eleven different surveys • 80’s, 90’s, 00’s • ~350 lines • Area of ~6.500 km2 F02 Hanze

  13. 13. Conclusions • Still high untapped potential in northern Dutch offshore • Reprocessed 2D-seismic data significantly improves quality • Regional analysis with 2D seismic gives an excellent indication of HC-potential different structures • Deliverables project: Geological report, 2D-seismic dataset and Petrel-project:  Interpreted re-processed seismic dataset  All wells incl. LAS-files and TD-tables  Well top re-interpretation  Well log analysis  Polygon set of leads  Maps of reservoir & seal  Regional maps by TNO Chalk
