Summary

In this research, sediment and petroleum samples, mainly drill stem cuttings, were subjected to detailed geochemical analysis.  ROCK-EVAL pyrolysis measurements showed that the sediments do contain potential petroleum source rocks, and relationships are suggested following correlation studies of crude oils and source rock extracts.

This report incorporates the findings of M0003, M0027 and M0044.

Keywords: Canning Basin, petroleum geochemistry, pyrolysis
