Join us on our journey through the Vulcan Sub-basin – one of the hottest areas of the North West Shelf!
MGPalaeo is about to complete a Multi-client Core Study over the Vulcan Sub-basin. This comprehensive data set covers 1.6 kilometres of core from 63 wells from Crux 1 in the South-West to Ludmilla 1 in the North-East.
All cored intervals were reviewed and photographed during which core condition, cored intervals and brief observations of the core, including depositional environments, were recorded. Existing palynological data over the cored intervals has also been reviewed and refined, and supplemented by analysis of new core samples.
Additionally, out of these 63 wells, 25 wells were described at moderate to low resolution, with 270m (approx.) of cores described at 1:70 scale and 500m (approx.) of cores at 1:200 scale. A PDF of each of the core logs, a brief report including depositional models, along with digital grain size, litho- and depofacies data, will be provided as part of the deliverables in this multi-client study.
Would you like to see some of the wells from this study in core? No problem, just come along to our Multi-day Core Workshop.
We will be looking at key stratigraphic intervals, starting with the Late Cretaceous Puffin Formation and finishing off in the Late – Middle Triassic Pollard Formation.
To cope with the significant amount of core present we have split our core workshop into two parts; the first two days will cover the younger parts of the stratigraphy from the Puffin Formation to the Lower Vulcan Formation, whilst the older stratigraphy from the Elang to the Pollard Formations are covered in a separate one-day workshop immediately following.
During the Puffin Formation to Lower Vulcan Formation two-day core workshop, we will focus mainly on the Upper and Lower Vulcan formations, although cores from the Puffin Formation and Echuca Shoals Formation will also be included. A wide range of depositional environments, including seal and reservoir facies are present throughout this part of the stratigraphy and will be discussed in detail, while comparing the changes in environment with surrounding wells.
The one-day Elang Formation to Pollard Formation core workshop concentrates on the older parts of the stratigraphy, covering the Elang, Plover, Malita, Challis and Pollard formations and the changes in depositional environments. New palynological samples add to the complexity of the overall stratigraphy and are discussed throughout the day.
Companies / Individuals will have the chance to sign-up to either one of the workshops individually or for the three days combined at reduced rates.
