L Eday Reservoir Rocks

Exposed on the east and south side of the Scapa Fault System with a small patch on the north side at Houton. These dunes appear to thicken into the down thrown side of the Fault. They are top sealed by the Eday Flagstones and fault sealed by the Stromness and Rousay Flagstones.

A good example of the L Eday Sandstone reservoir is observed at the Houton Head Reservoir System.

As exposed the dune system  presents about 30million acre feet of potential excellent quality hydrocarbon reservoir.
