STORIES FROM THE GEUS ARCHIVE - SEARCHING FOR OIL IN NORTH GREENLAND IN 1985

During the 1980ies geologists were looking for energy all over the world, and in 1984 the first systematic oil geological investigations were started in North Greenland to map the hydrocarbon potential. During the summers of 1984 and 1985 geologists were drilling cores and mapped the rocks to search for signs, that oil has been formed. It is challenging to work in this large remote part of the world.
