PESA WA invites you to our May technical luncheon with guest presenter Avon McIntyre.
“Bursting Source Rocks and Strange Hydrocarbon Occurrences Around the World”
Presented by Avon McIntyre
In recent years the Unconventionals business with its focus on source rocks has greatly improved our understanding of maturation, migration and charge timing. Integrating these insights to conventional exploration can help us explain some puzzling hydrocarbon occurrences. These range from shallow un-biodegraded oil discoveries to problematic trap timing and strange subsurface pressures.
This talk will cover some lessons from unconventional exploration where the concept of ‘bursting source rocks’ has been hypothesised. Avon will attempt to use it as an alternative mechanism for some of the more difficult-to-explain oil and gas fields in the world, and how we may need to re-think our charge timing assumptions.
