This report is on the summary of a play in the Snark dataset from the northwest coast of Australia. I have used Petrel to analyze and interpret this dataset. The Snark dataset lies within the Barrow basin which is home to many promising and producing oil fields such as Barrow Island which is the largest onshore discovery in Australia.

Figure 1. Northwest coast of Australia with red star showing location of Snark survey.

I then began to pick important horizons and faults such as the Base Cretaceous Unconformity. I then tried methods such as flattening and using attributes to locate potential reservoirs. The next step was to bring everything together and make an interpretation from my observations of the dataset.

Figure 3. Inline 265 showing 4 main horizons, the BCU is shown in teal

I interpreted the sinuous features as channels that ran through the area during the Cretaceous period. Since channels transport sediment I knew this was a good start in my hunt for a reservoir. The channels are narrower towards the east suggesting the source of the river to be to the east. This is...
