Thyer, R.F. & Noakes, L.C., 1945. Occurrence and distribution of oil in the glauconitic sandstone at and around the Lakes Entrance shaft; with a discussion of factors affecting probable oil recovery. Record  1945/072. Department of Supply and Shipping: Mineral Resources Survey, Canberra.

Abstract

Recently, it was desired for engineering and other purposes to test the micaceous marls and the glauconitic sandstone below the bottom of the shaft. It was decided to put down a diamond drill hole and to use the cores for necessary testing. This report deals mainly with the examination of the cores of glauconitic sandstone obtained from the drill hole. An attempt has been made to correlate much of the available data on the Lakes Entrance field which has a bearing on the Lakes Entrance oil project, and to provide a summary of the occurrence and distribution of oil in the glauconitic sandstone. Finally the report includes a critical examination of the factors influencing the recovery of oil from the glauconitic sandstone by horizontal oil wells, and an estimate of the percentage of oil which might be recoverable from a given area at Lakes Entrance.
