• 26th February 2015: 3D-GEO looking ahead to APPEA in Melbourne and Myanmar Oil and Gas.
Following the successful exhibition at ASEG-PESA last week in Perth, 3D-GEO is starting to gear up for two exhibitions in May. 3D-GEO will be exhibiting at the APPEA Conference in Melbourne with James Preston and Dave Briguglio looking after the booth, and Mike Noble presenting a poster on the reprocessing of 3D seismic reflection data (17-20 May; Booth 26). We will also be exhibiting at the 2nd Myanmar Oil and Gas Exhibition in Yangon (19-20 May) and running a workshop on improving seismic data quality. Keven Asquith and Hadi Nourollah will be looking after things in Yangon. We look forward to seeing many of our customers at these conferences and exhibitions.

• 17th February 2015: 3D-GEO enjoys a busy start at the ASEG-PESA Exhibition.
It was a busy first day at the ASEG-PESA Conference and Exhibition yesterday. A number of conference attendees visited the booth and that provided our delegates at the exhibition with several opportunities to run through the benefits of engaging with 3D-Geo. Photos can be viewed here.

• 4th February 2015: 3D-Geo's Rooftop Pizza Lunch brings Melbourne Oil and Gas People Together
3D-GEO held its pizza lunch for the Melbourne oil and gas industry on its rooftop terrace yesterday. The lunch provided a perfect opportunity for friends and colleagues to get together over a slice of pizza and a cold drink on the rooftop terrace. Photos can be viewed here.

• 27th January 2015: Australian proposed Offshore Petroleum Acreage Release 2015
In December 2014, the Department of Industry released 28 proposed areas for the 2015 Offshore Petroleum Exploration Acreage Release. The proposed release areas span 7 basins. The release areas will be finalised when the Industry Minister, The Hon Ian Macfarlane, announces the commencement of the 2015 Acreage Release during the APPEA conference on 18 May 2015. The proposed areas are shown in the table below.

3D-GEO has regional basin reports available for the Canning, Perth, Cooper/Eromanga, Otway and Gippsland Basins. 3D-GEO also has extensive practical experience in the Browse/Bonaparte Basins and the North West Shelf.

• Visit to Kuala Lumpur
21st January 2015: 3D-GEO is in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, this week providing training for, and conducting meetings with various oil and gas exploration companies. The visit incorporates follow up work on past projects in Malaysia. 3D-GEO is active in the area and expects further follow up trips to Kuala Lumpur in 2015. Future visits will provide opportunities for discussions concerning potential projects in SE Asia and we will gladly allocate time to meet with clients during those visits.

Media Release, January 8th, 2015: 3D-GEO to commence the reprocessing and interpreting of vintage Gippsland Basin 3D Seismic Survey data for Oil Basins Ltd.
3D-GEO will commence the reprocessing and interpreting of 187 km2 of vintage ExxonMobil Northern Area 3D and Moby 3D Seismic Survey data for Oil Basins Ltd. The new geotechnical studies will include QI / AVO, fault seal analysis and well planning. A staged payment arrangement has been structured for this project. See the media release for more information.

• 3D-GEO will be attending and exhibiting at several conferences in 2015
The first conference at which 3D-GEO will be exhibiting is ASEG-PESA 2015 (in Perth, 15-18 February). This event is claimed to be the premier exploration geophysical conference in the southern hemisphere and arguably at the top of the list for mineral exploration geophysics. 3D-GEO will be highlighting the release of its Regional Basin Reports (for the Canning, Perth, Cooper/Eromanga, Otway, and Gippsland Basins). Visit us at Booth 55.

3D-GEO will be exhibiting at APPEA 2015 (17 – 20 May) in Melbourne. The APPEA Conference and Exhibition is the largest annual upstream oil and gas event in the southern hemisphere, attracting delegates from across the country and around the world. We look forward to sharing with you our latest insights in structural interpretations and basin analysis. 3D-GEO will have its Regional Basin Reports available at the exhibition. You’ll find us at Booth 26.

In May we will also be standing alongside other companies who have expanded their business into the largely unexplored Myanmar oil and gas sector when we exhibit at the 2nd Myanmar Oil and Gas Exhibition and Conference taking place on 18 - 21 May 2015 at the Sule Shangri-La Hotel (formerly Traders Hotel) in Yangon, Myanmar. You’ll find us at Booth 232.

Additionally, we will be conducting a post-Conference Masterclass on Thursday 21 May 2015 entitled “Improving Seismic Data Quality within an Integrated Geotechnical Evaluation Workflow”. This course presents the fundamental components of an Integrated Geotechnical Workflow, commencing with how to get the most from your seismic data and finishing with a basin model that captures all the petroleum system variables that may influence your chance of success. The industry generally accepts that most of the “easy” hydrocarbons have been discovered and that randomly drilling structural highs is costly and time consuming. To reduce geotechnical risks, all the available data needs to be optimized and integrated into comprehensive 3D structural and stratigraphic models. This workflow is also time consuming, however it is very cost effective compared to drilling dry holes. To ensure management support throughout the evaluation workflow, project management principals and reporting must be implemented.

3D-GEO will be well represented at the AAPG / SEG International Conference and Exhibition in Melbourne next September. Our staff will be presenting papers at the conference and we will also be exhibiting. Come and see us at Booth 402.

• Piecing together the skeleton of the Gippsland Basin
A Melbourne company has been awarded the tender to create a geological ‘skeleton’ of the Gippsland Basin that can be fleshed out to become a sophisticated 3D model and used by companies to explore for valuable resources.

• 3D-GEO Regional Aquifer Map

When 3D-GEO completes such a project the intellectual property of the products is owned by the client. The regional surfaces match the data in time and depth; in contrast to datasets that exclude seismic data. 3D-GEO supplies all projects with interpretation and extrapolated products. Most groups within the geotechnical arena; from petroleum, geothermal, hydrology, energy resources and earth monitoring would be interested in various outputs related to 3D-GEO workflows and products.

• 3D Victoria Report 2 - Otway Basin: stratigraphic and tectonic framework
http://dpistore.efirst.com.au/product.asp?pID=737&cID=53
A framework sequence stratigraphic study of the onshore and offshore eastern Otway basin has been conducted as part of the 3D Victoria Initiative, in an attempt to resolve the complex stratigraphy and contradictions and confusions present in the published literature. The results are promising at the present pilot scale, but the full details of the chronostratigraphy have not yet been finalised.
