Date: 24th and 25th August 2017MGPalaeo Browse Basin Core Workshop
Time: 8:00am to 4:00pm
Venue: Core Library DMP, 37 Harris Street, Carlisle

This two-day core workshop focuses on the integration of palynology and sedimentology from selected cored wells, predominantly situated in the Jurassic Plover Formation in the Browse Basin.

Cores from fourteen wells across the greater Ichthys Field (8 wells) and Poseidon area (6 wells) were selected for more detailed discussions. This will be supplemented with regional palynological data, particularly from the Brecknock-Calliance wells.

The aim is to produce a hands-on workshop interspersed with a few short introductory palynological and ichnological presentations and biostratigraphic exercises. Participants will also be given ample opportunity to examine the cores and initiate discussions that help to correlate and better understand the fluvial, marginal marine and shallow marine systems in these Early–early Late Jurassic Browse Basin successions. After this workshop, each attendee will have a better understanding of the variability present within the Plover Formation and will be able to put this knowledge into direct use in any exploration, appraisal or development scenario.
