Trip details

The PESGB are pleased to announce that the above field trip is currently under preparation.  This will be a 2 day trip to the Durham and South Shields area, extending along 18 km of coastline.  The key objectives are as follows:

  • To consider outcrop and Formation dimensions so that they may be placed within a seismic, exploration and well spacing context.
  • To compare outcrops geometries and facies with their sub-surface equivalents. Core, open hole and image log characteristic will be considered in this regard, where possible.
  • To examine the spectacular post-depositional processes which have affected some outcrops and their cliff-scale geometries.
  • To discuss and observe outcrop reservoir quality, in terms of pore types (and fracturing), their connectivity and controls upon their distribution. The effects of Recent meteoric flushing upon extant pore systems will also be discussed, if applicable.

The outcrops which will be visited are as follows:

TROW POINT

BLACKHALL ROCKS

CLAXHEUGH CLIFF (or Clach-see cliff as it is known locally)

MARSDEN BAY

ROKER PROMENADE

TUNSTALL HILLS

SEAHAM HARBOUR

 

For more details of each site, please review the field trip leaflet

*Price will include breakfast, a packed lunch and dinner each day and a field trip guide.

PLEASE NOTE: Places are limited on this field trip.
