PESA WA: April Technical Luncheon – Exmouth Sub-Basin: New Data, New Insights

Thursday, April 11 @ 12:00 - 14:00

Event Categories:

Guest Speaker: Craig Dempsey

Since graduating from Flinders University with a degree in geophysics Craig has spent the past 40+ years working on petroleum systems around the world including all the major Australian, South-East Asian and South Asian basins, North Africa, North Sea and Gulf of Mexico.

During this time Craig has covered all the geoscience aspects of the business including seismic operations and processing, basin analysis and prospect generation through to production geoscience with a distinct preference to the more regional and exploration roles.

For the last 23 years, he has been employed by BHP and is currently Principal Geoscientist in their Australia Exploration Group.

PESA WA invites you to our April technical luncheon with guest presenter Craig Dempsey.

“Exmouth Sub-Basin: New Data, New Insights”

Presented by Craig Dempsey


The Exmouth Sub-basin forms one of several Jurassic depocentres in the greater Carnarvon Basin and has been prolific in terms of hydrocarbon production with approximately 1 Bbbls of oil and over 1 Tcf of gas discovered to date.

The sub-basin was recently covered for the first time with a contiguous, high quality, deep-record 3D seismic survey that has enabled detailed structural and stratigraphic mapping over its full extent, providing new insights into the tectono-stratigraphic history of the area.

This talk describes these new interpretations and discusses their implications for the thermal history of the basin and the consequent effects on the petroleum system of the Exmouth Sub-Basin.
