The PESGmapB map of the North Sea Basin and Atlantic Margin has been in production since its inception which dates back to 1990. The map is updated every two
years with each update planned to coincide with the PETEX Conference and Exhibition. The map summarises the major structural elements of the region and is supplemented by additional geological and geophysical information ranging from regional seismic sections through to representative seismic sections across different oil and gas fields; seismic ‘attribute’ maps; geological structural cross sections etc. The 2017 edition of the map will be released at PETEX in November of this year and then distributed to the PESGB membership with the January/February 2017 Magazine. As in previous years, the PESGB Map has also been sent to all schools, colleges and universities within the UK that are involved in earth science education.

The PESGB gratefully acknowledges the ongoing support received from CGG Robertson (GIS, draughting and layout), PGS (supplementary seismic panels, ‘attribute’ maps) and Deloitte LLP (licence base map; oil and gas field outlines).

Additional support has been received from sponsors whom have contributed to the printing and distribution costs of the map. The 2015 edition of the map was generously funded by Egdon Resources plc, ERCL Limited, Gaia Earth Sciences Limited, Hannon Westwood, Interica, Maersk Oil North Sea UK Limited, Midland Valley, Neftex, PetroStrat ltd, SCGIS Ltd, Stag Geological Services Limited, TAQA, Task Fronterra, Total and Union Jack Oil plc. In return for this support, each sponsor together with its corporate logo is acknowledged on the map.


As in previous years, corporate sponsors are sought to contribute towards the printing and distribution of the 2017 edition of the PESGB Map. The cash sponsorship has been pegged at £1000 (unchanged from 2013).

Map Sponsorship is also included in the Platinum Sustaining Sponsorship Package
