MGPalaeo are running a one-day integrated workshop focussing solely on the Dorado 2 core, drilled in the Bedout Sub-basin in 2019, and registrations are now open!

Dorado 2 was the first appraisal well of the Dorado oil and gas field which was discovered in 2018. Dorado 1 discovered hydrocarbon bearing reservoirs in the Caley, Baxter, Crespin, and Milne members of the Lower Keraudren Formation. Dorado 2 was drilled down-dip approximately two kilometres from the Dorado 1 discovery and encountered 85m of net reservoir in the primary Caley Formation, and 32m of net pay in the underlying Baxter and Milne sandstones.

The 233m of Dorado 2 core will provide detailed palaeoenvironmental insights into the Middle Triassic Caley and Baxter reservoirs, through the integration of sedimentology, ichnology, and palynology.

Details are as follows:

Date: 28 July, 2021 [dependent upon release of the core]

Venue: DMIRS core facility, Perth, WA

Registration: email [email protected]

This workshop is not to be missed!

Also, keep an eye out for our Perth Basin integrated core workshop, slated for late September. More information on that will be coming soon.
