AB - Significant variations in the salinity, chemical and stable isotopic composition of formation waters can be observed in the existing published data from the North Sea Basin. Variations occur at all scales, from intra-formational and within-field to basin-wide variations in water chemistry within and between formations. Clearly, the present-day North Sea Basin waters are highly heterogeneous. These variations have important implications. Various aspects of formation-water chemistry impact upon reserves estimates (/?w) and scale prediction (e.g. Ba, Sr, S04), and also yield valuable information on the processes of water-rock interaction and diagenesis leading to modification of reservoir quality. However, present understanding of the processes causing the compositional heterogeneities is limited by the sparse coverage of the existing published data. Consequently, a new effort is being made to compile formation-water data for all fields in the greatest detail possible. Interim results from this compilation are reported. © 1993 Petroleum Geology '86 Ltd.
