PESA SA/NT Technical Luncheon: Is there any room for gravity in petroleum exploration? Let’s open the door again!

Thursday, 28 January, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm (Australia/Adelaide time)

$5.00 – $70.00

Guest Speaker(s): Sergey Shevchenko

Sergey Shevchenko graduated with BSc degree from the Tashkent University in the Former Soviet Union and currently is a PhD student at Curtin University in collaboration with Michigan Technological University. He has a full circle experience in exploration and development for the oil and gas industry and worked in over 15 petroleum basins worldwide. He started his carrier as a potential field geophysicist, then he worked as a seismic interpreter and at later stage as a QI geophysicist. He worked for DownUnder Geosolutions, Cooper Energy, TransAtlantic Petroleum, Incrimental Petroleum, Arc Energy, Monitor Energy, Woodside Petroleum, Department of Mines and Petroleum of Western Australia, CGG Exploration Company. His key skills and interests are Seismic interpretation, Reservoir characterization (AVO, Inversion applications) and Potential field methods (Gravity and Magnetics). He works as a geophysical consultant/director of the SIS Exploration Pty Ltd.

PESA SA/NT is pleased to announce the first technical luncheon will be held on the 28th of January, 2021 at Ayers House

Luncheon Talk: Is there any room for gravity in petroleum exploration? Let’s open the door again!

The seismic method has been thriving in the oil and gas industry for decades. Technological progress in acquisition, processing and interpretation have made it practically the only geophysical method used for petroleum exploration. Unfortunately, gravity, as a pioneering geophysical method appears to have been completely forgotten in Australia’s oil and gas industry. Most of the gravity data in Australia were collected in the 1960s and 1970s. Only government agencies and a few exploration companies have conducted gravity surveys in petroleum basins since that time. Australia’s mostly flat terrain, economical aspects of the gravity method such as low cost and the ability to cover vast underexplored onshore basins in the country, all seem to be positive factors indicating that this method should be commonly used as a part of petroleum exploration. Given the petroleum industry is currently trying hard to make exploration more economically effective, this may be an opportunity to revive the gravity method in petroleum exploration.
