Recently, renewed interest in the hydrocarbon potential of Upper Carboniferous strata of the North Sea basin (and especially the Cleaver bank High area) led to an increased exploration activity in this area of the Dutch and UK offshore. The Upper Carboniferous deposits in the Cleaver Bank High area are characterized by a high lateral variability in sedimentological facies which makes prospecting for hydrocarbons difficult. Therefore, a high resolution stratigraphical framework in combination with a better insight in the distribution of sedimentological facies is needed to increase the exploration efficiency in this area. This is achieved by high resolution quantitative palynology on ten wells from the Cleaver Bank High area (Dutch offshore).
