The Offshore Canning Area Prospectivity Study is based on new interpretation of well over 130,000 km of Searcher’s rectified OpenSeis data and 5,000 km of Searcher’s NWS SuperTie Reprocessed seismic data.
Recent oil discoveries in the area, such as Phoenix South-1 and Dorado-1, the largest oil discovery in Australia in 40, demonstrate the huge potential of the area as well as the presence of a working oil petroleum system in the Lower Triassic.
Substantial potential appears to exist not only in and around the Phoenix South and Dorado areas, but updip on the flanks of the basin.
In addition to Triassic plays, potential is also evident in the Jurassic and Cretaceous sequences, where available data over the Broome Platform reveals multiple reservoir / seal pairs, analogous to the accumulations in the Stag, Gwydion and Cornea fields elsewhere in the region.
Direct hydrocarbon indications on the Broome Platform such as surface seepage and pockmarks, provide supporting evidence of long distance migration and Paleozoic plays are proven onshore but remain relatively unexplored in the offshore areas.
The study will provide timely and strategic information which will help companies understand the implications of the recent discoveries and the prospectivity of the Bedout, Rowley and Oobagooma Sub-basins and adjacent platform areas, as well as providing an excellent foundation for additional detailed studies.
