This month, PESA QLD is delighted to bring you a presentation from Dr Glenn Morgan.
Glenn is a Principal Geophysicist for Lattice Energy, and this month he is presenting case study of the Halladale – Speculant Gas Fields, with particular emphasis on deploying innovative exploration and appraisal strategies in a first-of-its-kind development for Australia.  PESA Members are sure to get something out of this inside look at a cutting-edge field development.

Presentation Abstract:

The Halladale and Speculant gas fields lie in the Eastern Otway Basin, Victoria, and are the first offshore fields to be developed from mainland Australia via onshore wells. They provide excellent examples of how Transition Zone seismic can be used to explore for fields that may otherwise go undetected in nearshore areas, and how Extended Reach Drilling (ERD) technology can be used to develop these nearshore fields in a far more cost effective way.
This case study documents the exploration work that led to the discovery of the Speculant Field, and the development of the Halladale and Speculant fields using ERD technology with well lengths of up to 6015 mMD and horizontal step-outs of up to 5152 m. It clearly demonstrates how new ideas and technologies can reinvigorate an area previously thought to be mature.

Tickets can be purchased below.
Please be advised of the early bird cutoff date.
