The Gippsland Basin is often regarded as the birthplace of the modern oil and gas industry in Australia. It is also a basin of firsts for the local industry; first offshore well, first offshore gas discovery, first offshore oil discovery, first offshore oil and gas development, first platform, first 3D seismic, first subsea completion etc. So it is timely then, and in keeping with the PESA 50 year celebrations, that we revisit the history of exploration and development of the…Find out more »

PESA NSW lunch talk, 14th February 2017 *** New venue: Castlereagh Boutique Hotel 169 Castlereagh Street, Sydney *** Presented by Roland Spuij Summary of Talk: Exploration for oil and gas is often hampered by the perception that the technical exploration risks are too high and irreducible and by increased difficulties related to environmental approvals and stakeholder relations. Exploration prospectivity is located in a wide range of physical and political environments, each requiring a different approach. However, the essentials are in…Find out more »
Understanding thermal history of potential hydrocarbon source rocks forms a vital component of exploring for hydrocarbons, as it controls the timing of generation. Identifying areas where hydrocarbons were generated after traps were formed thus allows more prospective areas to be identified. Our thermal history reconstruction studies in many parts of the world, applying apatite fission track analysis combined with vitrinite reflectance, have shown that in many sedimentary basins hydrocarbon prospectivity is controlled by events in which km-scale section is deposited…Find out more »
PESA WA Branch February Technical Luncheon – Broome Sandstone Dinoturbation, Implications for Petroleum Geology
Hosted with thanks to our sponsor Spectrum Dinoturbation of the Broome Sandstone – implications for petroleum geology. A talk by Robert Seggie Dinosaur footprints have been long-recognised in the Early Cretaceous Broome Sandstone in NW Australia. Sporadic coastal outcrop over 250km of this formation is interpreted to have been deposited in a tide to wave dominated deltaic to coastal setting. Common sedimentary deformation is interpreted as dinoturbation. The observed dinoturbation was produced predominantly by sauropods with footprints…Find out more »
Dear Members and Friends of the Foundation, You are invited to attend one of the Professional Development Workshops in February 2017, organized in association with the Safety Institute of Australia (SIA), which will include drinks and finger food on arrival and the screening of ‘Deepwater Horizon’ the movie. Following this will be presentations on the Gulf of Mexico oil rig incident, and its aftermath, by: Cheryl Mackenzie, Investigator at the United States Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB),appointed as…Find out more »
