Offshore Hydrocarbon Wells

Oil rig

The UK Continental Shelf (offshore) hydrocarbon well collection contains material from approximately 8000 wells, including over 300 km of drillcore and 4.5 million samples of cuttings. Material may be selected by any combination of well name, operator, depth range, sample type and metric or imperial units.

During 2011–12, the collection was transferred from Gilmerton to Keyworth. Transferred core has been photographed and the results - [details] screen includes thumbnails and links.

You can also use a map to search this database using our Offshore GeoIndex.
