Group/Formation Age Area Reservoir rock Depositional environment Trap Source rock Critical factors Examples of discoveries Examples exploration wells
brl-1 Sassendalen Group with Havert Formation Indus Finnmark Platform, Hammerfest Basin, Hoop, Måsøy, Nyslepp and Troms-Finnmark fault complex, Loppa High, Maud Basin, Mercurius High, Nordkapp Basin, Norsel High and Swaen Graben Sandstones Fluvial, deltaic, shallow marine, tidal and estuarine Mainly stratigraphic, but also structural (rotated fault blocks and halokinetic) Upper Devonian-Lower Carboniferous coal (Billefjorden Group) and Upper Permian shale (Tempelfjorden Group) Lateral extension of reservoir and reservoir qualities. The area has been affected by tilting, reactivation of faults, and Cenozoisk uplift and erosion
brl,rm-4 Sassendalen Group with Klappmyss and Kobbe Formations Induan-Anisian Finnmark- and Bjarmeland Platform and Nordkapp Basin Sandstones Fluvial, deltaic, shallow marine, tidal and estuarine Mainly stratigraphic, but also structural (rotated fault blocks and halokinetic) Upper Devonian - Lower Carboniferous coal (Billefjorden Group), Upper Permian shales (Tempelfjorden Group) and Upper Triassic delta plain shales Lateral extension of reservoir and reservoir qualities. The area has been affected by tilting, reactivation of faults, and Cenozoisk uplift and erosion

brl,rm-5 Sassendalen Group with Klappmyss and Kobbe Formations Induan-Anisian Loppa High Maud Basin, Mercurius High, Hoop Fault Complex and western part of the Bjarmeland Platform Sandstones Fluvial, deltaic, shallow marine, tidal and estuarine Stratigraphic Middle Triassic shale (Steinkobbe Formation), Lower Carboniferous coal (Billefjorden Group) and Upper Permian shales (Tempelfjorden Group) Lateral extension of reservoir and reservoir qualities. The area has been affected by tilting, reactivation of faults, and Cenozoisk uplift and erosion
bru-1 Kapp Toscana Group with Snadd Formation Ladinian-Early Norian Finnmark- and Bjarmeland Platform, Nordkapp basin and Norsel High Sandstones Fluvial, deltaic, shallow marine, tidal and estuarine Stratigraphic (rotated fault blocks and halokinetic) Upper Devonian - Lower Carboniferous coal (Billefjorden Group), Upper Permian shales (Tempelfjorden Group) and Upper Triassic delta plain shales Lateral extension of reservoir and reservoir qualities. The area has been affected by tilting, reactivation of faults, and Cenozoisk uplift and erosion
bru-2 Kapp Toscana Group with Snadd Formation Ladinian-Early Norian Loppa High, Maud Basin, Mercurius High, Fingerdjups Sub-basin, Veslemøy High, parts of Bjørnøya Basin, Stappen High, Bjørnøyrenna Fault Complex, Hoop Fault Complex and western part of Bjarmeland Platform Sandstones Fluvial, deltaic, shallow marine, tidal and estuarine Stratigraphic (rotated fault blocks and halokinetic) Middle Triassic shale (Steinkobbe Formation), Lower Carboniferous coal (Nordkapp Formation) and Upper Permian shales (Tempelfjorden Group), Lower Permian marls (Tyrellfjellet Member equivalent) Lateral extension of reservoir and reservoir qualities. The area has been affected by tilting, reactivation of faults, and Cenozoisk uplift and erosion
