Greenland Resource Assessment

Together with Nunaoil and GEUS, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Energy is conducting a resource evaluation project for the Greenland shelf areas.

The project is using all available geophysical and geological data as well as industry data to create the most up-to-date resource evaluation of the Greenlandic shelf areas.

The project will run over a 3½ year timespan and is subdivided into seven assessment units (AU). After completion of each assessment unit, the technical work and results will be QC’ed by an external cooperation partner. The external partner for the QC of the resource evaluation project is the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD).

After the review by the NPD, the resource assessment for the AU will be made available for industry at no cost. The aim of this is to make it readily accessible so that the most interesting areas for exploration in a given assessment unit can be identified and to facilitate business decisions by the industry.

Currently, AU1 (Davis Strait/Southwest Greenland offshore), AU2 (Baffin Bay) and AU3 (Disko West area) have been completed, i.e. the whole of the West Greenland, and the resource evaluation project is now embarking on evaluation of the Northeast Greenland area.

The evaluations and results for the project can be found on this link:
