maximise the value of your paleogene assets

1155 WELLS available Now

The Bujak Database is an essential resource for all companies evaluating Paleogene plays in the North Sea/West of Shetland areas. It provides improved stratigraphic calibration for both hydrocarbon and energy transition projects.

The database features biostratigraphic, lithostratigraphic, sequence stratigraphic and chronostratigraphic data presented with consistent interpretations by Dr. Jonathan Bujak, an expert in this field. The database can be bought in its entirety or as bespoke subsets according to project needs. 

For more background information on the evolution of the Paleogene, see Dr. Bujak’s technical blog post.
