Abstract

The data used in the compilation of this atlas originate from research conducted by the CO2CRC seals research program and superceded the APCRC seals program. Similar atlases exist in other parts of the world, notably by Shell, Sneider and Reservoirs Inc., and Petrotech. This is the first such atlas to deal specifically with seals and even more specifically, Australian and New Zealand seals.

The seals atlas is primarily based on extensive mercury-injection capillary-pressure (MICP) analyses that have been performed using a state-of-the-art Micromeritics Mercury Porosimeter. The samples included in this atlas are mainly from the research realm, as most commercial work is proprietary. In addition to MICP data, thin sections, x-ray diffraction analysis, grain-size distribution, scanning electron microscopy with energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy, and shale volume are included.

The hydrocarbon and carbon dioxide seal examples are grouped by basin localities (see location map) and further distinguished by formation, well, then depth if multiple examples were analyzed. Where multiple examples are available, a range of lithologies and MICP data are included in the sample selection.
