Field Trip Information

As a part of the agenda, a field trip will be organized for the attendees to enjoy. This Field Trip has been generously sponsored by CLTech.
The Field Trip will be a short field excursion specifically for technical data managers and other IM and IT staff (librarians, content managers, document managers, database administrators, application support staff and others) who work with geo-technical and petro-technical data types but may not have had the opportunity to see the geology that they are describing and analyzing in the field.

Learning objectives and proof points:

  • Build and refresh staff’s capability to relate their day to day activities to the science and technology of petroleum exploration and production
  • Work with geo-technical data in the larger context of geologic processes and concepts
  • Enhance communications and shared understanding between geo-technical professionals and data management staff
  • Understand and appreciate that it’s “all about the rocks”

The field trip will visit outcrops of Triassic and Jurassic sandstones from the Moreton basin, in one road outcrop to observe the depositional setting, and in deposits that will allow close observation and handling of the rocks, and in an environment that promotes understanding of the hydrocarbon lifecycle.

From a data management point of view, we will consider the following through field observation:

  • Scale of data available from data sources such as seismic and well logs
  • What properties are measured in petro-technical data
  • Importance of Units of Measure
  • Interpolation and extrapolation of acquired and processed data
  • Geospatial location of petro-technical data and uncertainty
  • Value and preservation of physical sample data

The sandstones and coals of the Moreton basin are potential source and reservoir rocks for the petroleum and coal resources of the Clarence-Moreton Basin.
