LIVE WEBINAR – Application of a Shale Evaluation Workflow in the Velkerri Fm, Beetaloo Basin

Thursday, 2 July, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm (Australia/Perth time)

Free – $10

Guest Speaker(s): Stuart Munday

Stuart has worked for Chemostrat for 3 years, based initially in New Zealand and now in Perth working on projects throughout the APAC region. Prior to this, he was senior geologist at New Zealand Oil and Gas but spent most of his career at BG Group, where he worked on various North African assets subsequent to being posted to QGC in Brisbane. Stuart had worked previously for Roc Oil in the North Sea and at Exploration Consultants Ltd, where his focus was on the basins of sub-Saharan Africa. He has a BSc in Geology, an MSc in Petroleum Geology, and is a fellow of the Geological Society of London.

Application of a Shale Evaluation Workflow in the Velkerri Fm, Beetaloo Basin

Presented by Stuart Munday

Maximizing the use of drill cuttings is critical in the understanding and commercialization of unconventional plays. Operating in a number of North American shale plays. Chemostrat has developed a workflow to derive mineralogy, TOC, bulk and matrix density curves, by application of proven desktop analytical techniques on well cuttings. By integrating the results, it’s then possible to derive porosity, compressional and shear sonic curves as well as mechanical rock properties. This webinar will present the results of applying this workflow to the Velkerri Formation as intersected in the Origin Amungee NW-1 well, Beetaloo Basin, the first time this has been attempted in Australia. In this case it’s possible to calibrate and ground-truth the results to XRD, TOC, wireline curves and shale rock property data available for the well. Utilising this data, it’s then possible to describe the characteristics of the primary source intervals and compare them to global shale play examples.
