Explorer Historical Highlights

Australia’s first offshore well heralded a new era of hydrocarbon independence for a continent previously thought to have “the wrong geology” to host significant oil and gas deposits. This success did not come easily – the early history of oil exploration in eastern Australia was long and frustrating, and not very successful.

One of the first questions a seismic interpreter must ask is how to recognize and characterize the reservoir. Understanding the geology and the depositional history of the area is a good start.

If the recent evidence of an uptick in acquisitions and divestiture activities continues, the next APPEX Global event in London should coincide with many new international prospects in the first quarter of 2018.

Curvature has long been used by geologists to predict the density of natural fractures from outcrop. Sand box experiments show that correlations between curvature and strain can be significant, which is supportive of the curvature-strain-natural fractures supposition inherent in the use of curvature to predict natural fractures.

VG Abstract

The following short course option was developed for geology and geophysics students that have not had much exposure to how geoscience is applied in industry. It can be tailored for undergraduate juniors and seniors or graduate students. The agenda can be modified to meet specific needs and time constraints. Contact the presenter to discuss options.

VG Abstract

In comparison with the known boundary conditions that promote salt deformation and flow in sedimentary basins, the processes involved with the mobilization of clay-rich detrital sediments are far less well established. This talk will use seismic examples in different tectonic settings to document the variety of shale geometries that can be formed under brittle and ductile deformations.
