In the Norwegian-Danish Basin, deep water sandstones of upper Palaeocene age, hold some smaller hydrocarbon fields and discoveries on the Danish sector close to the border with Norway. The sands on the Norwegian side have been drilled by the dry well 3/6-1 and are highly porous and permeable.
The suggested Fiskebank Formation aquifer is located in a depression in the top chalk surface as shown in the figure. More wells are needed to confirm the existence of high quality sands.
There is some hydrocarbon exploration activity in this area, which is not considered to be fully explored. The sealing capacity of the Paleocene caprocks is generally thought to be good. Fracturing related to salt structures may occur.
