The environmental effects of river nutrient loads to the North Sea have been investigated using a numerical biophysical model, NORWECOM, to perform different reduction scenarios. The simulations demonstrate that the river nutrients have a significant contribution on the annual primary production, both in the southern North Sea, in Skagerrak and along the Norwegian west coast. A 50% reduction in the loads of N and P reduces the primary production with 10-30% in the southern North Sea, and 5-10% in Skagerrak and along the Norwegian west coast. Scandinavian rivers only contribute to the 1-2% level in these reductions, thus continental rivers has the major effect on the environment in all downstream areas. However, it should be noted that this reduction, even in the southern North Sea, is less than the natural variability of the production of phytoplankton. A reduction only in the P values, shows that the production regime in the southern North Sea is phosphorous limited, while nitrogen is the ...
Herring (Clupea harengus) is a pelagic schooling species that migrates between spawning, wintering and feeding grounds. Juveniles shoal close inshore while adults are found more offshore. Herring spawn in coastal areas on sandy and gravel substrates, making them vulnerable to anthropogenic activities such as gravel extraction and the development of coastal wind farms. Herring is one of the dominant planktivorous fish and is an important prey item for predatory fish, marine mammals and seabirds. North Sea autumn spawning herring are mainly caught by mid-water trawlers and purse-seiners in the late spring and summer in the central and northern North Sea, and in the autumn and winter in the southern North Sea.. ...

2. History of exploration == So far, 95 exploration wells have resulted in 23 significant discoveries in the southern North Seas Carboniferous fairway, representing an exploration success rate of about one in four. Only five wells were drilled prior to 1984, when the discovery of the Ketch and Boulton fields helped to stimulate a 13-year boom in exploration and appraisal drilling ([[:File:YGS_CHR_14_REMA_FIG_03.jpg,Figure 3]]). There has been a notable decline in exploration drilling since the mid-1990s, mainly for two reasons:* Many of the most obvious exploration targets - the pop-up horst-block ridges and anticlinal closures of the base Permian unconformity - have been drilled. Other play types are still perceived to have a relatively high risk of failure, although few tests of stratigraphical plays or intra-Carboniferous targets have been carried out so far. * During the mid- to late 1990s, high drilling costs and other economic factors combined adversely to affect the commercial viability ...
The North Sea has warmed in recent decades and there is evidence to suggest that the geographical distributions of several fish species, including cod, have shifted north towards cooler waters (Beare et al. 2004; Perry et al. 2005; Rindorf & Lewy 2006). Not all evidence is consistent with this scenario, however; Heessen & Daan (1994) observed that cod aged 3 and 4 years (equivalent to those in our study) tended to be found in higher numbers in the warmer fraction of the North Sea. The present study suggests that while cod were capable of finding cooler waters, the majority occupied the upper fraction of thermal habitat available. Although this does not contradict Perry et al.s (2005) conclusion, we should consider why, if rising temperatures have pushed cod north, we did not observe any response to temperature at the individual level. Perry et al.s (2005) and Rindorf & Lewys (2006) data were drawn from across the entire North Sea. This can be a concern because there is mounting evidence that ...
The Norwegian fishery of spurdog (Squalus acanthias L.), which started in 1930, has played a dominant part in the fishery for this species in Europe. During 1963-1968 a change occured in the behaviour of the spurdog stock. The spurdogs left the traditional fishing grounds, and this lead to a depression in the Norwegian fishery. New concentrations were discovered in the southern North Sea during the autumn 1968. Several tagging experiments, 1975-1979, indicate that the spurdogs in this area migrate to the area north of Scotland during the spring. Recaptures from taggings 1959-1966 together with information on Scottish spurdog catches during 1947- 1957, indicate that the spurdogs in the southern North Sea belong to the Scottish-Norwegian spurdog stock. During the last two years the Norwegian longline fishery for spurdogs has been greatly reduced. Length distributions indicate that maturing and mature females which constitute the main part of the Norwegian catch, were heavily reduced in numbers ...

A 15 month survey was carried out into the distributions of trace metals, trace organics and nitrogen species in particulate and rainwater samples collected from the atmosphere over the southern North Sea. This is the first time a comprehensive and reliable data-set of this kind has been obtained for a coastal region from collections made at sea. Trace metals. There is a south-north decrease in the emission of trace metals to the atmosphere from the land masses surrounding the North Sea. ´End-member` aerosol trace metal concentrations have been identified for the three major source regions; i.e. continental Europe, U.K. and the open-sea, and indicate that, in general, aerosols from air masses which have crossed continental Europe are richer in some trace metals (e.g. Zn and Pb) than those from air masses which have crossed the U.K. There are short-term variations in the concentrations of trace metals in aerosols over the North Sea; however, on an integrated long-term basis the concentrations ...

Coupling of physical, biological and chemical processes associated with particle resuspension and seston flux was investigated at three sites in the North Sea with contrasting water column (mixed/stratified) and seabed (cohesive/non-cohesive) characteristics. Seston concentration was determined by a combination of local resuspension and advection of a regional horizontal concentration gradient. Model simulations of observations show that fair weather, the bed erosion rate was limited by the availability of suitable bed material. The resuspended particles were derived from a surficial veneer of material (fluff) that was relatively enriched in organic carbon. Sediment from the bed itself was therefore not resuspended by tidal currents even at a shallow water, sandy site. Bioturbation of the seabed by infauna significantly modified the properties of muddy sands at a deep water site in summer, but this was insufficient to cause tidal entrainment of the bed sediment. Resuspension increased under ...
This focusses on the period November 1988 to October 1989 and spatially on the southern North Sea. The models are taken as they are presently used, i.e. varying from one another in the detail of included physics (2D/3D, barotropic/baroclinic, dispersion formulation), numerical solution techniques, grid sizes, calibration and underlying hydrodynamics. Thus the one constraint is that the models must all have the common spatial coverage of the North Sea basin between 51deg N and 55deg 40N. To enable model simulations to be carried out a comprehensive [data set] has been constructed which includes bathymetry, tides, time- varying meteorology, boundary forcing and river discharge. Within the intercomparison there are four 2D models and nine 3D models, some of these are tidally-resolving (mesoscale) (9) and some are not (macroscale) (3).. Four experiments were defined: ...

Apache Corp. (NYSE, Nasdaq: APA) has made discoveries on two exploration wells in the Beryl area of the UK North Sea. The company also drilled two development wells in the Beryl area, from which no reserves have been previously booked. Additionally, Apache has made a discovery at its Seagull prospect, which lies 50 miles south of the companys Forties Field, the largest oil field in the UK North Sea.. The K and Corona wells are the first exploratory prospects drilled by Apache in the Beryl area. Each discovery proves a separate geologic concept that helps to de-risk additional drilling locations. Apache estimates that the K and Corona discoveries, combined with results at the Seagull discovery, represent likely net recoverable reserves of 50 million to more than 70 million barrels of oil equivalent (MMboe). Future appraisal drilling will enable the company to further define the upside potential beyond 70 MMboe. Apaches proved reserves in the North Sea at yearend 2014 were approximately 140 ...

Belgian biologists have rediscovered a hotspot for underwater life in the North Sea. In the vicinity of a few sandbanks along the Belgian coast, the fauna is flourishing just like it was a hundred years ago. Despite increased disruption due to fishing, the area is teeming with whelks, top shells and dead mans fingers.. The Belgian North Sea primarily has a sandy bed, but on the edges of some sandbanks there are gravel beds made up of rocks and pebbles. More than a hundred years ago Professor Gustave Gilson, a Belgian pioneer in biological marine research, ascertained that the biodiversity there was very high, differing greatly from the surrounding sandy areas. The gravel beds were also breeding grounds for fish, including herring, which found shelter there.. Over subsequent decades, the gravel areas were greatly diminished due to fishing: the stones were overturned or pulled up along with the catch, which meant the species that were typical of the region could no longer live there. But ten ...
Shell UKs efforts to reduce oil-to-sea discharge at Nelson field, 120 km offshore Aberdeen in the Central North Sea, to comply with OSPAR regulations, have been complicated by the heavily corroded state of the Nelson water injectors. The state of these injectors posed a major challenge to successfully recovering the slot and executing a workover, which would allow produced water to be re-injected into the reservoir instead of being discharged to the sea. BACKGROUND Nelson field (Block 22/11) is located about 120 km east of Aberdeen in the Central Graben of the North Sea UKCS. The reservoir interval is the Paleocene, Forties sandstone, which comprises turbidite sandstones deposited in a proximal, mid-fan part of a large, basin-floor, sub-marine fan system. Production is about 40,000 bopd. Four seawater injectors on the periphery of Nelson field had together injected over 235 million bbl of seawater.

The North Sea is a busy oil and gas province. For two years, oil and gas prices have been high and relatively stable, while explorers have had their interest sharpened by licensing offers in the UK and Norway. In the UK, investment confidence has been lifted by last years tax incentives; in Norway, recent large discoveries are the attraction. But - as seen in the past - high activity levels can soon strain the North Sea areas capacities in construction and oil services. In the UK, the producers and suppliers organisation, Oil & Gas UK (OGUK), says there are concerns about "shortages of skilled personnel, wage inflation and a general escalation of operation costs". In Norway, the No. ...
In this thesis, Palaeogene pressure data collected from over 300 offshore wells in the UK, Norwegian and Danish sectors of the North Sea are analysed. Regional overpressure distributions within individual Palaeocene and Eocene sandstone members are mapped across the Central North Sea, and lateral fluid flow pathways are interpreted within each individual sandstone member. Drainage within the older Maureen, Mey and Forties sandstone members is found to be predominantly south-east to north-west, with additional westwards drainage observed within the Mey and Forties sands, where smaller lateral fans fed into the basin from the Western Platform. Overpressure distributions within the Cromarty and Tay sandstone members indicate drainage westwards, where fluids probably escape through shelfal sandstones of the Mousa and Dornoch formations ...
BP is looking to cut costs by £9.5bn. (Guardian). Embattled BP is to cut costs by $14bn (£9.5bn) in six months as part of a radical plan to sustain profitability in the wake of the explosion at its Deepwater Horizon oil rig that has led to the worst spill in US history.. Well-placed City sources say that BP is planning to sell its remaining North Sea interests as well as stakes in dozens of exploration and production projects where it does not exercise overall control. The board will also consider whether to sell its 1.4% stake in Rosneft, Russias largest oil company, which it acquired at the time of Rosnefts 2006 flotation for $1bn.. But there is no question of BP selling out of its Russian joint venture with TNK, as that operation accounts for 25% of its worldwide resources and around 10% of profits.. BPs British and European assets account for little more than 4% of its global portfolio and several projects in the North Sea are being wound down as supplies become exhausted. But a sale of ...

Recently, the IP Troll Tracker blog decided to try to officially define "patent troll" to a level that might satisfy a patent holder who insists that there is no such thing as a patent troll. For many years, we here at Techdirt avoided using the phrase "patent troll" because it did seem rather undefined, but it became so commonplace that we eventually gave in and used the phrase regularly. The term has showed up in all sorts of places, including courtrooms and discussions on legislation. In some circles, policy makers often use the term "non-practicing entities" (or NPEs) instead of "patent trolls" but that upsets some who feel that there are "NPEs" (like universities) that do research that they wish to license off, but which will never be "practicing entities." Some have also called them "Patent Assertion Entities" (PAEs) to describe companies who do nothing more than assert patents. At least that leaves out universities -- but then that also leaves out companies who do other things but who ...

The purpose of this research is to test whether clustering algorithmscan be used to detect troll farms in social networks. Troll farms are profes-sional organizations that spread disinformation online via fake personas.The research involves a comparative study of two different clustering algo-rithms and a dataset of Twitter users and posts that includes a fabricatedtroll farm. By comparing the results and the implementations of the K-means as well as the DBSCAN algorithm we have concluded that clusteranalysis can be used to detect troll farms and that DBSCAN is bettersuited for this particular problem compared to K-means.. ...

A chapter in the history of oil production in the North Sea is about to end as Royal Dutch Shell seeks approval to decommission its platforms of the Brent field which have produced 10pc of the region
Apache Corp. said an extension well in the British waters of the North Sea had the highest oil production rate since any other in the region since 2001.
Norway - block 31/2, 31/3 and 31/5. Landmark: Increased Oil Recovery by using oil production XTs for gas injection. In order to prevent water ingress and increase recovery of oil from the Troll B reservoirs two injection wells were placed in the H-region of TOGP. The project becomes a landmark by using the identical XT as for Troll O2 project (oil production).. The state of the art SCMs are interchangeable with both Troll O2 and Vega, and the XTs are backwards compatible with Oseberg field developments. If desired the equipment can be used for production when injection phase ends in 2024.. The structures are compact Integrated Satellite (ISS) type and render less than 190 tonnes installation weight (including Flowbase) for installation vessel flexibility. It also accommodates contingency features for acoustic Hydro Carbon Lead Detector (HCLD), re-installable HP caps for XT wing hub on Flowbase and XT reentry hub. Structures and Flowbases allows for future daisy chaining. The structures also ...
The aim of this work was to determine the effect of light crude oil on bacterial communities during an experimental oil spill in the North Sea and in mesocosms (simulating a heavy, enclosed oil spill), and to isolate and characterize hydrocarbon-degrading bacteria from the water column. No oil-induced changes in bacterial community (3 m below the sea surface) were observed 32 h after the experimental spill at sea. In contrast, there was a decrease in the dominant SAR11 phylotype and an increase in Pseudoalteromonas spp. in the oiled mesocosms (investigated by 16S rRNA gene analysis using denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis), as a consequence of the longer incubation, closer proximity of the samples to oil, and the lack of replenishment with seawater. A total of 216 strains were isolated from hydrocarbon enrichment cultures, predominantly belonging to the genus Pseudoaltero monas; most strains grew on PAHs, branched and straight-chain alkanes, as well as many other carbon sources. No obligate ...
Researchers have discovered the fossilized leg bone of a saber-toothed cat that lived near the UK coast between one and two million years ago. Paleontologist Dick Mol said the fossil belonged to a type of saber-tooth called a scimitar cat that weighted about 881lbs. The recent discovery marks the first time a fossil of this species has been uncovered in the North Sea. Researchers regularly come across fossils from common extinct beasts such as the mammoth from the sea.. Beam trawlers use special gear to gently touch the sea bed, capturing flatfish lying in the sand. But this also stirs up shallow, buried fossil remains which can end up in the nets.. The fossil, which was encrusted with tiny, coral-like sea creatures called bryozoans, was brought ashore by the owner of the Dutch trawler TX 1.. The owner passed the fossil to a collector who sent it to Mol, who identified its composition. Mol said the weight of the bone was an immediate indication that much of its organic matter had been converted ...
Reynolds C, Blunt MJ, Krevor SC, 2018, Multiphase Flow Characteristics of Heterogeneous Rocks From CO2 Storage Reservoirs in the United Kingdom, Water Resources Research, ISSN: 0043-1397 We have studied the impact of heterogeneity on relative permeability and residual trapping for rock samples from the Bunter sandstone of the UK Southern North Sea, the Ormskirk sandstone of the East Irish Sea, and the Captain sandstone of the UK Northern North Sea. Reservoir condition CO2-brine relative permeability measurements were made while systematically varying the ratio of viscous to capillary flow potential, across a range of flow rates, fractional flow, and during drainage and imbibition displacement. This variation resulted in observations obtained across a range of core-scale capillary number math formula. Capillary pressure heterogeneity was quantitatively inferred from 3-D observations of the fluid saturation distribution in the rocks. For each of the rock samples, a threshold capillary number, math ...
