Abstract/Summary

Post-depositional folding of Triassic strata, formed largely by the development of salt domes and pillows in the underlying Zechstein Group, led to the formation of numerous large anticlinal structures at the level of the Triassic aged Bunter Sandstone Formation (BSF). These structural closures, some of which have formed effective traps to natural gas, have been mapped across the UK Southern North Sea (SNS), and are currently of interest as potential prospects for the storage of anthropogenic CO2.
