Abstract

This publication presents the scientific and technical results obtained from the drilling of a deep test well at Puri in Western Papua, by the Australasian Petroleum Company Pty Ltd. These results were originally submitted by the company in a completion report on the well, written in two parts: Part I, Geology, by C.E.P. Hull, which -includes a report on the palaeontological examination of samples from the well, by F .C. Dilley. Part II, Petroleum Engineering, by M.W. Clegg, including the information obtained from testing and the results of oil, gas anj water analyses. This information has been combined into one volume. The authors of the various chapters are indicated in the table of contents. The formal Papuan stratigraphic nomenclature is at present being studied by the geological staff and advisers of the Australasian Petroleum Company Pty Ltd in London. As this study is not complete, the stratigraphical names in common use by the operating company have not been submitted for the formal approval of the Australian Stratigraphical Nomenclature Committee. Accordingly, within this report Miocene stratigraphical units are designated by informal geographical stage names and an appropriate lithological term. The Eocene and Cretaceous sediments encountered in the well are not subdivided but are merely referred to a Eocene limestone and Cretaceous shale. Two deviated holes, Puri No lA andPuri No 1B, were drilled from Puri No 1, but as these were not subsidized under the Petroleum Search Subsidy Acts, information from these holes is not included in this report.
