Developing a Facies Architectural Outcrop Analog for Kuwait Formation at Jal Az-Zor Escarpment to understand Stratigraphic Controls on Heavy Oil Production Northern Kuwait

Tuesday, September 28, 2021
1830 AEST
1930 AEST

Topic: Developing a Facies Architectural Outcrop Analog for Kuwait Formation at Jal Az-Zor Escarpment to understand Stratigraphic Controls on Heavy Oil Production Northern Kuwait

Date & Time: Sep 28, 2021 06:30 PM in Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney

Presenter:  Salah El-Ekhfifi,exploration geologist,NOC,Libya and  Aimen Amer

Registration: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_pfNYT0SDTciQCTdFgAwKAQ

Description:

The Goal of this work is to develop an outcrop analog that can explain subsurface reservoir architecture.

This will be established through two methods:

1) conventional facies modeling and

2)forward stratigraphic modeling.

By applying these two methodologies, we will reinterpret an enigmatic elongated geobody in the subsurface and explain, how such feature is an excellent stratigraphic trap

ASEG Webinar: Preconditioned Compressive Sensing for Wavefield Reconstruction

Thursday, September 2, 2021
1300 AEST

Title: Preconditioned Compressive Sensing for Wavefield Reconstruction, Applications to tomography, Helmholtz-Hodge decomposition and Distributed Acoustic Sensing

Presenter: Jack Muir

Date/Time: Sep 2, 2021 1300 (AEST)

Registration: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_Sr40IBw9SmiEnyMh5dOY4w

 

Abstract: The proliferation of large seismic arrays have opened many new avenues of geophysical research; however most techniques still fundamentally treat regional and global scale seismic networks as a collection of individual time series rather than as a single unified data product. Wavefield reconstruction allows us to turn a collection of individual records into a single structured form that treats the seismic wavefield as a coherent 3D or 4D entity. We propose a split processing scheme based on a wavelet transform in time and Laplacian preconditioned curvelet based compressive sensing in space to create a sparse representation of the continuous seismic wavefield with smooth second order derivatives. Using this representation, we will illustrate three applications that require accurate access to the full wavefield including spatial gradients -

IMAGE '21 is the integrated annual conference and exhibition of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) and the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) and in conjunction with the Society for Sedimentary Geology (SEPM).

Click on the image below to view the event. 

The Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) and in conjunction with the Society for Sedimentary Geology (SEPM) are excited to host, IMAGE 2021 - the International Meeting for Applied Geoscience & Energy. The three societies agreed earlier this year to hold this integrated annual meeting over the next five years, the first of which will be a hybrid event held from 26 September to 1 October 2021, at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado and online.

As global leaders in disseminating high-quality applied-geoscience knowledge and data, SEG, AAPG, and SEPM have joined forces to create this powerhouse event bringing together multiple disciplines of the geosciences sector. IMAGE ’21 combines all the great elements from each society’s previous annual meetings under one roof to offer a better experience and increased value for the industry.

IMAGE ’21 will welcome speakers, exhibitors, and attendees to participate in-person or online, or both. The comprehensive technical program will feature more than 1,000 presentations, nearly 200 sessions, 14 post-convention workshops, 10 special sessions, five field trips, countless networking opportunities, and a joint exhibition showcasing the latest geoscience products and technologies. One registration will give delegates access to the core technical sessions, the exhibition, and several other events.

Don’t miss the ultimate learning and networking event for applied geoscience and energy.

 

Tech talk - Application of Multi-Scale Magnetotelluric Data to Mineral Exploration: An Example from the East Tennant Region, Northern Australia

Thursday, August 12, 2021

Title: Application of Multi-Scale Magnetotelluric Data to Mineral Exploration: An Example from the East Tennant Region, Northern Australia

Presenter: Wenping Jiang, Geoscience Australia

When: 12th August,2021 at 11am AEST

Registation: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_gKKtAD8MRwaRCNUp-DNwNA

Abstract: 

The footprint of a mineral system is potentially detectable at a range of scales and lithospheric depths. Magnetotellurics is one of few techniques that can provide multi-scale datasets to image and understand mineral systems. We have used long-period data from the Australian Lithospheric Architecture Magnetotelluric Project (AusLAMP) as a first-order reconnaissance survey to resolve large-scale lithospheric architecture for mapping areas of mineral potential in northern Australia. The 3D resistivity model reveals a broad conductivity anomaly in the lower crust and upper mantle to the east of Tennant Creek, representing a potential fertile source region. Results from a higher-resolution infill magnetotelluric survey reveal a favourable crustal architecture linking the lower, fertile source regions with potential depositional sites in the upper crust. This observation strongly suggests that the deep-penetrating major faults potentially acted as pathways for transporting metalliferous fluids to the upper crust where they could form mineral deposits. This result and its integration with other geophysical and geochronological datasets suggest high prospectivity for major mineral deposits in the vicinity of these major faults. In addition to these insights, interpretation of high-frequency magnetotelluric data helps to characterise cover and assist with selecting targets for stratigraphic drilling which, in turn, can validate the models and improve our understanding of basement geology, cover sequences and mineral potential.

This study demonstrates that integration of geophysical data from multi-scale surveys is an effective approach to scale reduction during mineral exploration in covered terranes.

Biography: Dr Wenping Jiang joined Geoscience Australia in 2012 after completing a PhD degree from the University of Sydney. Since Feb 2016, she has worked as a senior geophysicist in the Mineral Systems Branch, delivering precompetitive data and information to improve the understanding of mineral resource prospectivity. Her professional focus is mainly on Magnetotelluric data processing, modelling and interpretation.
