Geology

  • The Bugan field is a wedge-shaped, tilted horst block and fault/dip closure on the east flank of the Iron Duke structure.
  • The M30 and N10 reservoir sands are thinner and more heterogeneous compared to the stratigraphically younger reservoirs of the Iron Duke Main field.
  • Porosity and permeability are slightly higher. The average porosity in Bugan is up to 28 % and permeability up to 3,000 mDarcy (3 m2).
  • The reservoirs consist of shallowing-upward sequences, with outer-shelf sediments at the base and lower coastal plain deposits at the top of each sequence.
