Good analogues are keys for better understanding petroleum systems in frontier basins and new plays in proven basins. Recent discoveries have proven Permian carbonate plays (e.g. 7120/1-3 and 7220/11-1) in the Norwegian Barents Sea and Triassic siliciclastic plays (e.g. Goliat, Tornerose and Alke Sør) in the North Atlantic. Permian and Triassic plays have been unsuccessfully tested on the Mid-Norwegian continental shelf (M-NCS), but these plays have recently attracted renewed attention. However, the lack of offshore core data from this interval provides a major obstacle in developing valid play models. On the conjugate East and Northeast Greenland margin, excellent outcrops and a large number of shallow fully cored boreholes document the syn- to post-rift Permian–Triassic interval. Data from this interval in East and Northeast Greenland thus provide important constrains on key elements for new play models on the M-NCS. The presentation will provide observations from East and Northeast Greenland that may help to assist the definition of play models for the Permian–Triassic succession in the M-NCS and place them in a tectono-stratigraphic context.
