Australian NW Shelf Pressure Study: Browse Basin

January 20, 2023

The Browse Basin contains overpressured Cretaceous, Jurassic and Triassic strata. The uncertainty in understanding the geopressure regime in the region forms a significant exploration risk for the safe and successful drilling of offshore wells.

As modern exploration targets deeper plays below the region’s Early Cretaceous seals, an increased understanding of geopressure will be essential to predict overpressure ramps, economically plan wells, and fully understand hydrocarbon migration and trapping.

Ikon Science have worked extensively in the Southern part of the Basin and therefore have an extensively knowledge of the distribution and mechanisms of overpressure here. This knowledge can be utilized and incorporated in a full Browse Basin study.
