Title: CASE STUDY :  Efficient exploration in the Bonaparte Basin Using Unstructured Data Analytics with ElasticDocs

Abstract:

Mining and Oil and Gas companies are awash with data from many different disciplines, the amount of data is growing exponentially and is estimated to double every 12 to 18 months. The diversity of the available data is such that it is impossible for any single user to efficiently access this information and knowledge. In recent years, these industries have been turning to finding new ways of tackling this challenge, using Big Data and Machine Learning technologies. In Iraya, we have developed ElasticDocsTM,  an intuitive knowledge container, capable of automatically ingesting and structuring reports, images and presentation using machine learning.

We will present a case study covering the entire Bonaparte Basin for Play Based Exploration (here, for Oil and Gas potential).The technology will be used to address the five most common potential challenges during a geological study: (i) Discrepancies in formation tops, (ii) Limited understanding of lithology distribution, (iii) Limited mineral composition understanding, (iv) Fluid distribution, (v) Pressure/temperature patterns. We will demonstrate how such analysis can be conducted in ElasticDocs and how much time and resources are saved by the geoscientist mining these vast amounts of unstructured data such as reports (G&G, drilling, production), presentations (studies, analysis, summaries), images (cores, thin sections), spreadsheets and tables.

GA’s new geophysical archive and data delivery system: GADDS 2.0

Wednesday, December 9, 2020
1530 AEDT
1630 AEDT

On Tuesday 9 December, 3:30pm AEDT the ACT branch is bringing us a talk by Simon van der Wielen on GA’s new geophysical archive and data delivery system: GADDS 2.0

Geoscience Australia’s Geophysical Archive Data Delivery System (GADDS) brings magnetic, radiometric, gravity and digital elevation data from Australian National, State and Territory Government geophysical data archives together into a single location.

As the current platform on which GADDS resides is reaching the end of its life, Geoscience Australia has been preparing to migrate to a new platform. Following a period of testing, the system will be officially released in December 2020. The new platform offers users a simpler and faster experience with greater flexibility over form and size of data delivery. Over time, the platform will also offer access to a broader range of data including multi-variable datasets such as airborne EM and airborne gravity and gradiometry.

The migration of this platform primarily supports Geoscience Australia’s enabling an informed Australia priority area.

ASEG WA Webinar: Pre-stack Depth Imaging: Challenges in exploration-scale volcanic geobody model-building in the Potiguar Basin, Brazil

Pre-stack Depth Imaging: Challenges in exploration-scale volcanic geobody model-building in the Potiguar Basin, Brazil

The Potiguar Basin includes the largest oil-producing region in Equatorial Brazil, where production is from the syn-rift to transitional successions. The Pitu well in the deep-water offshore part of the basin found oil, gas and condensate at depths of 4,300m in Upper Aptian sands of the Alagamar and Pescada Formations.

 

A 10,500 km² 3D survey was acquired in 2019 and seismic processing through PSDM imaging was initiated. The presence of high velocity volcanics in the sedimentary sequence presents unique imaging challenges for Pre-Stack Depth Migration (PSDM). By their nature, volcanic geobodies have a varying thickness, velocity fill and extent, and require detailed interpretation to be represented accurately in a PSDM anisotropic model. This talk will present an iterative and efficient methodology to interpret and refine volcanic geobodies with examples from this exploration-scale PSDM survey.

 

Rich Bartlett, Depth Imaging Manager from Shearwater GeoServices. Rich graduated in 2002 from the University of Leeds UK and Queen's University Canada with a Masters In Geophysics. He spent his early career as a Geophysicist at Veritas DGC with various roles in the Depth Imaging teams in both London and Calgary offices, moving through the various incarnations of CGGVeritas and CGG. This was followed by 3 years consulting with Monarch Geophysical Services on a range of marine and land acquisition and processing projects before moving back to the frontline with Dolphin Geophysical in 2013, and latterly with Shearwater GeoServices. Rich has helped build Shearwater's Depth Imaging capabilities from scratch, with Shearwater now offering a wide range of inversion and imaging services behind its vessels and to the open proprietary market.

Professional Development Course - Quieten your Inner Critic Workshop

Wednesday 11 November at 12.30-2.30pm AEST (Online)

To register, click here

Same cost as before: free for members, $25 for non-members.

We've explored how to break the cycle of feeling like a 'fake' at work. We've worked with the framework to be aware of that nagging voice in our head telling us that it was 'luck'. And we now know, we're not alone. What next?

With 70% of us experiencing 'impostor' like symptoms in our careers, this informative and inspiring interactive workshop sees us shift from an 'Impostor Life' to managing our 'Impostor Moments'. We'll balance our Inner Critic with our Wiser Self, build our evidence and re-energise our confidence to drive future success.

This workshop comes on the back of the popular course, Overcoming your Inner Critic, held in August. This workshop is a continuation, but if you didn't attend - IT'S OKAY - the facilitator will bring you up to speed. Cost is free for ASEG Members, $25 for non-members.

ASEG Webinar - Stranded stream channels investigated by LiDAR mapping, some geophysics and good old leg work. Insights into the Lapstone Structural Complex west of Sydney.

Wednesday, October 21, 2020

Brought to you by NSW on Wednesday 21 October, 6pm (AEST) for a talk by Peter Hatherly.

 

Stranded stream channels investigated by LiDAR mapping, some geophysics and good old leg work. Insights into the Lapstone Structural Complex west of Sydney.

 

In the contemporary parlance, the western boundary of what the media call the Sydney Basin is the Lapstone Structural Complex. The front range of the Blue Mountains. This abrupt escarpment rises to a maximum height of 600 m above the Cumberland Plain and forms an impressive boundary to the Blue Mountains beyond.

Geologists identified the monoclines and faults associated with the LSC as early as the nineteenth century but an understanding of the exact nature of the structure and its timing is still not clear. In this talk I take note of evidence of stranded channels evident in detailed LiDAR mapping, the occurrence of river gravels now high above the Nepean River and seismic refraction results within the Thirlmere Lakes, a curious river system within the southern extension of the LSC.

 

My suggestion is that in its present form, the LSC is probably no older than 10 million years.

The application of 2.5D AEM inversion to resource exploration with reference to open file survey examples from NSW, QLD and WA

The application of 2.5D AEM inversion to resource exploration.

The 2.5D AEM inversion technology developed by Intrepid produces spatially accurate images of subsurface conductivity in both cross section and in plan that are mostly free from the problems often seen in CDI and 1D inversions – particularly where 1D assumptions are not met.

Through a series of examples and survey configurations, we will demonstrate that 2.5D inversion products can be used confidently by geologists and geophysicists for orebody targeting and for geological and structural mapping in plan as well as in cross section. These products also facilitate the integrated interpretation of AEM, magnetics, gravity and surface geology.
