East Midlands – 5

Ironville structure has hydrocarbons, an old target, still not understood.

To build Ironville, we make it a thick-skinned inversion on extensional growth faults in Lower Carboniferous, passively folding the hangingwalls. We draw more or less the same amount of compressional shortening in the Namurian and Westphalian as deeper, but done on more numerous faults which detach in the mudstones.

We think Ironville-5/6 drilled into footwall, and a large closure in Visean may exist 5 or so km to east. Apply for this, with infill seismic.
