Geological description

CONCEALED STRATA

There are six deep hydrocarbons boreholes, within or adjacent to the Andover district, which provide evidence of the strata encountered at depth. Figure 3 shows the location of the boreholes and Figure 4 details the stratal thicknesses within each. Seismic sections show that Ordovician to Carboniferous strata form the basement beneath the area.

Additional data in nearby deep wells such as Farley South, Stockbridge, Lockerly and Humbly Grove can be found in Hopson et al. (2007), Booth (2002) and Farrant (2002).
