Age

Area

Finnmark Platform

Loppa  High  and Polheim Sub-platform

Finnmark Platform

Loppa  High 

Stappen High

Reservoir

Limestones and dolomites

Sandstone

Depostional environment

Carbonate buildups in shallow marine, warm water

Mostly marginal to
shallow marine, alluvial and fluvial inputs in the Carboniferous  

Trap

Stratigraphic, but a combination of stratigraphic and structural cannot be excluded 

Source rock

Upper Devonian-Lower Carboniferous shales, Lower Carboniferous   coal (Billefjorden Group), Upper Permian shales (Tempelfjorden Group), Middle Triassic shales (Steinkobbe Formation).

Lower Carboniferous coal (Billefjorden Group) and Upper Permian shales (Tempelfjorden Group).

Upper Devonian-Lower Carboniferous shales, Lower Carboniferous coal (Billefjorden Group), Upper Permian shales (Tempelfjorden Group).  

Upper Devonian-Lower Carboniferous shales, Lower   Carboniferous coal (Billefjorden Group), Upper Permian shales (Tempelfjorden Group), Middle Triassic shales (Steinkobbe Formation)     

Upper Devonian-Lower Carboniferous shales, (Norhamna Member, Kapp Harry Member),
Lower Permian organic marls (Kapp Dunér Formation equivalent)

Critical factors

Presence of mature source rock. Reservoir quality. The area has been affected by tilting, reactivation of faults, and Cenozoic uplift and erosion.
