Compilation of gravity and magnetic data in the area of Statoil's licence block 02 06, offshore West Ireland

For the recently awarded Statoil block 02/06, offshore West Ireland, gravity and magnetic data of the area from Statoil's DRAGON database were assorted to give a comprehensive overview of what data are already on hand. For the area of interest eight folders with gravity and 12 folders with magnetic data were extracted and displayed. For both gravity and magnetic, the different surveys were evaluated in terms of data quality and resolution. For gravity data, a compilation of the requested surveys already exists, whereas for the magnetic the corresponding datasets were merged in one map considering the evaluation results. The datasets on hand already cover almost the entire Statoil block 02/06 and its surroundings to the west. Towards the east and for the eastern most part of the blocks themselves, new data need to be purchased or acquired. Therefore, an overview of additional available data is presented and evaluated based on the available information. An outlining of the eastern basin edges is not permitted on the base of the high-resolution data sets. All maps and compilations are produced with Geosoft Oasis Montaj and presented in an Esri ArcGIS project. Grids are provided in Gosoft Oasis Montaj format.
