2 day event 22nd & 23rd August

8:30am-4:30pm both days with lunch and tea provided by event sponspor Geological Survey Western Australia. This is a free event thanks to the event sponsor as well.

Day 1 - Petroleum Systems and Geochemistry

Day 2- Petroleum System Modelling

•Participants will be introduced to the most modern concepts, methods and application of petroleum geochemistry used in understanding and modelling petroleum system
•The main emphases will be on importance of samples selection, petroleum geochemical analyses, data interpretations, and geochemical data integration with geology and geophysics to solve exploration and production problems
