Abstract

This "Petrel on WebBury" package presents interactive geohistory models of the regional burial, thermal and hydrocarbon maturation and expulsion history of the Petrel Sub-basin, Bonaparte Basin, NW Australia. These models are based on a comprehensive geohistory analysis undertaken by Geoscience Australia and Burytech Pty Ltd. The geohistory models are generated by the WinBuryTM 1D burial and thermal geohistory modelling software. The thermal history models are constrained by conventional vitrinite reflectance (VR), thermal alteration index (TAI), spore colour index (SCI), conodont colour alteration index (CAI) and limited fluorescence data (FAMM), together with limited apatite fission track analysis (AFTATM). The burial and thermal models are applied to potential Carboniferous-Cretaceous two source units within each well, and to three basin-wide source rock units - Lower Carboniferous Milligans Formation, Lower Permian Keyling Formation and Late Permian Hyland Bay Formation - to constrain the timing and relative volumes of expelled liquid/gaseous hydrocarbons. New kerogen kinetic data for these source facies are utilised in the expulsion models. The modelling package is divided into 5 sections: Wells: Geohistory models for 24 wells & 11 depocentre sites. X-sections: Cross-section geohistory models. Multi-well: Multiple-well geohistory curves and basin-wide maps for three source unit. Seismic: Interpreted seismic lines showing structural setting of the wells. Petroleum Systems: Schematic summary of the active petroleum systems. Multiple views within each section can be interactively selected by the user (eg. temperature, heatflow, subsidence, maturity and expulsion time-plots/contoured maps) by way of point and click buttons and drop-down windows. The user can make temporary modifications to existing, or add new, data in the well models, and view corresponding maturity, generation and expulsion models based on these changes. These revised models can be printed directly from the screen views but will not be saved on exit from the well. Current users of WinBuryTM modelling software can copy well data files from this package to their WinBury working directories. The package is run on a PC and requires 30MB hard disc space, Windows 95/98 or NT operating systems, and utilises a standard Web browser (Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator).
