“If you’ve got an unconventionals focused geologist in your company, go talk to them, you might be surprised at the learnings applicable to conventional hydrocarbon accumulations”.
That was the takeaway from Avon McIntyre’s WA Branch May luncheon talk – “Bursting Source Rock and Strange Hydrocarbon Occurrences Around the World”. The presentation challenged attendees’ thoughts on maturation, migration and charge-timing (all may be later than we think) through analysis of unconventional geology. Photos of explosively delaminated source rocks and abandoned gilsonite mines complimented an excellent talk.
