This paper focuses on the North Sea Palaeocene, in particular the Forties Formation, where the Shelley 22/2 and 22/3 and Huntington 22/14 fields are present. It highlights the detailed and careful approaches required to establish the hydrodynamic spill point (independently confirmed using seismic attribute data), and in doing so, provides a more accurate understanding of fluid distributions and reserves.
