The continental break-up of the Northern European plate and the Greenland plate during the Paleocene age was associated with transient, massive volcanism. This resulted in that volcanic rocks such as basalts covered a significant part of land-surface and sea-beds of Paleocene age. It is well known that the main hydrocarbon reservoirs in Europe are in sedimentary layers of older age than Paleocene. As a consequence many sedimentary sequences of highest hydrocarbon potential are overlaid by lava-deltas.
