Webinar: Wedge Proposal
07/12/2020 On Dec 8th, Dora Marín from UIS will be presenting the Wegde Proposal. A research project between the University of Stavanger and the University of Basilicata (Italy).
Wedge is a 4-year project aiming to provide detail geological characterization (from the tectonic setting to reservoir properties), predictive scenarios, and petroleum potential of syn- and early post-rift coarse-grained clastic wedges in the Norwegian continental shelf.
The project is a collaboration between the University of Stavanger (UiS) and the University of Basilicata (UBas), covering subsurface mapping, outcrop analogues and tectonosedimentary modelling. The cost per company is 2.5 MNOK for the entire length of the project with a minimum of four sponsoring companies.
The main deliverables will be all the research results accomplished by two PhD students and a GIS database where all subsurface, outcrop analogues and modelling will be integrated and a final report of the project. Meetings will be held and progress results will be provided every year.
