Laurel Shale Study (Yulleroo-3, Valentine-1, Valhalla-2, and Asgard-1)

Andrew Wilson PhD, with contributions from Brenton Richards

This project forms part of a study co-funded by DMIRS' Exploration Incentive Scheme and Origin Energy. It examines image logs containing the Laurel Shale from wells Yulleroo-3, Valentine-1, Valhalla-2 and Asgard-1 in the Canning Basin, Western Australia. A massive 4536.44 m MD were studied in detail! This project forms one part of the Laurel Shale Study and should be read along with Chemostrat Australia's report "Chemostrat Report PPAU50049 - Provenance Analysis of the Early Carboniferous Laurel Formation in
the Fitzroy Trough, Canning Basin, NW Australia." Go to WAPIMS to download the whole report, search for document name "Laurel Formation – Integrated Reservoir Study (EAP2022S2/00058636)".

West Erregulla-2, Perth Basin

Andrew Wilson PhD and Lena Thrane PhD

Click on the link below to contact us for a download link for the main report documents or head over to https://wapims.dmp.wa.gov.au/WAPIMS/, enter "West Erregula 2" in the "well name" box and you can find our full report included in the well completion report.

This is a must-see for anyone interested in the Perth Basin. You've probably seen seismic data and core logs, but have you seen the missing-link between these two scales of data? Look no further!

This is the first of our reports to include oriented 3D box models of palaeodepositional environment interpretations. We've never looked back! They're now standard in all our reports that have a sedimentology component.

This is a great example of how orientation information from a low-resolution image log really adds value to core description or core photo interpretation.

Adoxa 1, Canning Basin

Andrew Wilson PhD and Lena Thrane PhD

Click on the link below to contact us for a download link of the main report documents or head over to https://wapims.dmp.wa.gov.au/WAPIMS/, enter "Adoxa 1" in the "well name" box and you can find our report included in the well completion report (i.e. at the end of the WCR pdf).

This report contains great examples of conglomerates and boulders in resistivity image logs, as well as analysis of deformation in diamictites, and a fantastic example of fracture stratigraphy relating to phases of tectonic deformation. Enclosures are included in the report.

Box model gallery

Our three-dimensional, oriented box models synthesize results from our structural analyses with palaeocurrent and facies analysis results. These are essentially communication tools to help you understand the results from our projects and communicate them to non-geologists.
