A subaqueous clinoform system has been identified from high-quality three-dimensional seismic data from the northeast Exmouth Plateau, North West Shelf, Australia, and was interpreted as a shelf–slope–basin clinoformal component of a Jurassic fluviodeltaic system (the Legendre delta).

The Canning Basin is a largely unexposed and underexplored frontier basin, formed mostly in the Paleozoic. Geological knowledge of this basin is based predominantly on sparse regional “vintage” two-dimensional seismic and small three-dimensional (3-D) seismic surveys and less than 230 exploration wells.

There is very limited literature relating to gas production from ultra-deep (>9000 ft; >2700 m) coal seams. This paper investigates permeability enhancement in ultra-deep coal seams of the late Carboniferous and early Permian to Late Triassic Cooper Basin in South Australia, using a time-lapse pressure transient analysis (PTA) approach for a pilot well.

The Pennsylvanian—Middle Triassic Cooper Basin is Australia’s premier conventional onshore hydrocarbon producing province. The basin also hosts a range of unconventional gas play types, including basin-centered gas and tight gas accumulations, deep dry coal gas associated with the Patchawarra and Toolachee Formations, and the Murteree and Roseneath shale gas plays.

Where are the best opportunities in the future for exploration investment? The central question about where to look, where to drill, which area of the world holds the greatest promise, in terms of profits, the rule going forward may very well be: “When you go low, you go high.”

The search for new sources of helium is of paramount importance as a combination of declining production and increasing demand have made helium prices soar. This follows a century in which the United States had a near monopoly on helium reserves and U.S. production met global demand. Although most of the helium production story has taken place in the United States, there are other nations that have produced and are producing helium.

By the time they are drilled, almost all exploratory ventures today will have been geotechnically, statistically and economically analyzed to estimate their ultimate recovery of oil or natural gas, or its EUR, and its present monetary value, or PV, given discovery. This process is generally known as “exploration risk analysis” and it evolved primarily as a response to an endemic problem: explorers were discovering less than half of the EURs they forecast for their investors.

The Unconventional Resources Technology Conference was held this year in Denver, Colo., and once again, it did not disappoint. It was packed with technical presentations and exhibits and it continued to push boundaries and remain as the premier industry event focused on the latest science and technology in exploration and development of unconventional resources.

The earliest oil fields were found after explorationists drilled where they saw oil seeps on the surface. Now, new technologies and techniques can make microseeps visible and, as in the earliest discoveries, point to where oil may be found beneath the surface.
