The Faroe Shetland Channel is the deep bathymetric structure we see today beween the Faroes and the Shetland Islands. As drilling technology has increased during the last decade so has the industriy interest in these deep waters . During the last few years several oil discoveries have been made in the southeastern part of this area. During 1994 and 1995 12.000 km of new non-exclusive multichannel seismic has been acquired on the Faroe shelf just west of these discoveries. This paper focuses on the contemporaneous development of Faroe Plateau basalt and the lower Tertiary sediments based on the seismic sequence stratigraphic approach.
