Title: Shale resource data from the greater McArthur Basin
Report id: DIP014
Edition: version March 2017
Year: 2017
Author: Revie, D
Geological Province: McArthur Basin
Abstract: The Northern Territory Geological Survey (NTGS) is undertaking an assessment of the resource potential of shale units within key onshore basins in the Northern Territory. This involves compiling key parameter data to assess potential for hydrocarbon and mineral resources including total organic carbon (TOC), programmed pyrolysis, X-ray diffraction (XRD), shale rock properties, kerogen kinetics elemental kerogen analysis, Fe speciation and organic S content, gas chromatography, geomechanical rock properties and whole rock geochemistry. This data is sourced from open file company reports, core sampling reports, government publications and new analysis undertaken on core. The new analyses have been undertaken on samples taken from drillcore held at NTGS Core Facilities and the Geoscience Australia Repository. All analytical work with the exception of whole rock geochemistry was performed at Weatherford Laboratories (Australia) using the procedures as outlined in NTGS Record 2015-004. Whole rock geochemical analysis was performed by Intertek-Genalysis Laboratory Services Pty Ltd (Perth, Australia). Black shale units known for their resource potential have been prioritised for analysis and legacy data compilation in the initial phase of the project. Ultimately all black shale units within the correlated stratigraphy of the greater McArthur Basin will be analysed. Digital Information Package 014 (DIP 014) contains data collated up until March 2017.
