Shale gas prospectivity studies in the Perth Basin, Western Australia
MetadataShow full item record
The Early Permian Carynginia Formation and the Late Triassic Kockatea Shale are prospective shale gas resources in the Perth Basin. Various geological studies such as visual core description and petrography were conducted to understand about the lithofacies and depositional environments in the target formations. Key geochemical parameters such as TOC, thermal maturity and RHP were identified through rock-eval pyrolysis. Petrophysical studies were applied in detecting organic richness and fracability of the under-study shale plays.
