Petrology of a dolerite in Netherlands offshore well G/17-2
A dolerite intrusion in Upper Carboniferous sediments in Netherlands offshore block G/17 is described. Based on electron microprobe analyses of clinopyroxene and olivine, a minimum temperature of emplacement of some 1000°C is calculated. As a result of the intrusion, the maturation profile of the surrounding sediments may show a departure from linear behaviour.
