Abstract/Summary

This report describes the geological interpretation of a newly acquired, high resolution, 2D seismic dataset located offshore Northern Ireland. The report represents the final stage of a Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment (DETI)-sponsored study aimed at gaining a better understanding of the distribution and thickness of subsurface salt layers onshore and offshore Northern Ireland with a view to considering their potential for the construction of gas storage caverns.
