Our two-day core workshop on Variations in Depositional Environments within the Plover Formation gets underway on the 15th of March and is almost sold out. We have a couple of places still available but if you’re planning on coming along, please book your spot before the 5th of March.
Here are the details:
Variations in Depositional Environments within the Plover Formation
Date: 15th 16th March, 2018
Time: 8:00am to 4:00pm
Venue: Core Library DMP, 37 Harris Street, Carlisle
Focusing on the integration of palynology and sedimentology from selected cored wells, predominantly situated in the Jurassic Plover Formation of the Browse Basin.
This two-day core workshop focuses on the integration of palynology and sedimentology from selected cored wells, predominantly situated in the Jurassic Plover Formation of the Browse Basin.
Cores from fourteen wells across the greater Ichthys Field (8 wells) and Poseidon area (6 wells) have been selected for detailed discussions. This will be supplemented with regional palynological data.
The aim is to produce a hands-on workshop interspersed with introductory palynological, ichnological, and image log presentations, along with biostratigraphic exercises. Participants will also be given ample opportunity to examine the cores and initiate palynological and sedimentological 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.
