Fluvial and Aeolian Reservoirs of the East Irish Sea Basin, Wales and NW England, UK

Course Description:

The fluvial and aeolian Permo-Triassic reservoirs of the East Irish Sea Basin have proven accumulations of both oil and gas. These sediments, which represent facies equivalents to major gas-bearing intervals in the North Sea, are exposed onshore along with the underlying Carboniferous limestones in some of the most picturesque areas of Britain: North Wales, Cheshire, and Cumbria. This field trip provides a unique opportunity to study aeolian and low-sinuosity fluvial environments in three-dimensional exposure.

This field trip can also be delivered in conjunction with our courses on Clastic Reservoir Geology or Fluvial-Deltaic Reservoirs or our Exploration Workshop.
