Sequence Stratigraphy & Sedimentology of the highly prospective Early Permian oil and gas play in the North Perth Basin

Dates 6 – 8 September 2019, 09.00am at Crown, finishes at Crown
Location Coalseam Conservation Park, staying at Mingenew Hotel
Field Trip Blurb The Purpose of the Field Excursion is to examine the beautifully exposed, regressive to transgressive, Early Permian sequence along the Irwin River in the Coalseam Conservation Park. The excursion will focus on sedimentology and ichnofacies within a predictive sequence stratigraphic context and how these relate to depositional environment, lateral facies changes and changes in relative sea-level. Well logs, core and seismic examples will be used to compare the outcrop to the prospective play in the basin, providing attendees the opportunity to better understand this actively explored depositional system.
Field Trip Coordinators Simon Sturrock (Strat Trap), Amely Allgoewer (MGPalaeo) & Darren Ferdinando (Murphy Oil)
