Most of the UKCS basins are very mature with a high well density and well known plays. The continued search for additional resources both through exploration or delineation, is fuelled by the presence of nearby infrastructures and facilitated by improved technology. Seismic plays an important role, both at exploration (prospect identification and derisking) and appraisal-development stages (field evaluation and uncertainty reduction) thanks to continued improvements at various steps of the geophysical chain. This paper will illustrate through several recent examples (West of shetlands, Northern North Sea, Central Graben)how a better understanding of the geological key elements was made possible thanks to optimized seismic data
