A reinterpretation of magnetic anomaly and basement trends suggests that the Labrador Sea opened in two stages. During a first phase, most likely in the late Jurassic–early Cretaceous, the. North Sea oil is a mixture of hydrocarbons, comprising liquid petroleum and natural gas, produced from petroleum reservoirs beneath the North Sea.. In the petroleum industry, the term "North Sea" often includes areas such as the Norwegian Sea and the area known as "West of Shetland", "the Atlantic Frontier" or "the Atlantic Margin" that is not geographically part of the North Sea.   This book serves as an introduction to the Cretaceous geology and palaeontology of south-central Africa, covering the whole of Southern and Eastern Africa and Angola. Fifty two plates illustrate almost species and provide a field guide to the macrofossils of the subcontinent. To the north of Africa the Tethys Sea continued to narrow. Broad shallow seas advanced across central North America (the Western Interior Seaway) and Europe, then receded late in the period, leaving thick marine deposits sandwiched between coal beds. At the peak of the Cretaceous transgression, one-third of Earth's present land area was submerged.

Cretaceous Period - Cretaceous Period - Major subdivisions of the Cretaceous System: The rocks that were either deposited or formed during the Cretaceous Period make up the Cretaceous System. The Cretaceous System is divided into two rock series, Lower and Upper, which correspond to units of time known as the Early Cretaceous Epoch ( million to .

The Jurassic-Cretaceous North Sea central rift system is related to the rifting processes in the Arctic North Atlantic. During the Tertiary this sector of the Atlantic entered the drifting stage. At the same time the North Sea rift system became inactive, leading to regional subsidence. Emplacement of the late Tertiary. A shallow inland sea called the Eromanga Sea covered nearly one-third of Australia. was a primitive titanosauriform and one of three new dinosaurs recently named from the Winton Formation in central Queensland. More details Goannas evolved in the northern hemisphere in the Upper Cretaceous Period about 90 million years ago. Discover more.

The museum has a wonderful, large scale map of North America during the late Cretaceous. Note that the shorelines of the Western Interior Seaway changed almost continuously as sea levels went up and down, and the western half of North America was pushed upward by the collision of continental plates.

In the North Sea the strong seismic boundary, often known as the ‘Base Cretaceous Unconformity’, is shown to be neither an unconformity nor to coincide with the Jurassic/Cretaceous boundary.

The first five volumes (funded by UKOOA) covered the Central and Northern North Sea plus the Carboniferous of the Southern North Sea. The post-Carboniferous succession of the Southern North Sea (volumes 6 and 7) were funded by BGS in order to extend the post-Carboniferous nomenclatural scheme to the entire UK sector of the North Sea.

Major normal faults, mainly trending N–S, were active during a late Permian-Early Triassic rift phase affecting large parts of the central and northern North Sea area.

A later phase of extension was initiated in late Middle Jurassic time and the Egersund Basin proper formed during the Late Jurassic-Early Cretaceous.

In this area, it is widely believed reservoir-quality sands were sourced from local residual Late Cimmerian highs, with resultant limited distributions of commercial fairways.

The basic structural framework of the North Sea is mainly the result of Upper Jurassic/ Lower Cretaceous rifting, partly controlled by older structural elements. The Jurassic and Cretaceous strata of the North Sea host the majority of the hydrocarbons within the UKCS, including both reservoirs and source rocks.

The Middle Jurassic Brent Group is the principal reservoir unit of the Northern North Sea, while the Upper Jurassic Fulmar Formation is the most important target in the Central North Sea (Fig.

In the Jurassic–Cretaceous North Sea basin, the synrift sequence is separated from the post-rift sequence by the ‘base Cretaceous’ or ‘late Cimmerian’ unconformity.

The unconformity covers almost the entire basin, has a distinct character in seismic reflection data and wireline logs, and hence, is easily identified and correlated. LITHOSTRATIGRAPHIC NOMENCLATURE OF THE UK NORTH SEA: 2 CRETACEOUS (CENTRAL AND NORTHERN NORTH SEA).

The source potential of the Upper Jurassic – lowermost Cretaceous shales in the North Jens‐1 well is generally lower than that observed regionally, including an absence of relatively organic‐rich, oil‐prone intervals in the older part of the succession which have been demonstrated to occur elsewhere in the Danish Central Graben.Northern North Sea In the Northern North Sea, Apache has now completed its appraisal of the Upper Jurassic Callater Field with Well 9/19b The well was successful and is now expected to .A palynostratigraphic zonation is for the first time established for the entire Cretaceous succession in NE Greenland from Traill Ø in the south to Store Koldewey in the north (72–° N).
